OK, this one really surprised me. I was aware of new technology to produce 3D TV images without glasses, but this approach is different. Have a look!

I think it's hilarious... I would also hope that it's some kind of a joke.

What do you think? Is this just a prank that even Engadget believes in?

I have heard of other techniques to have stereoscopic vision without lenses but this is new to me. This is very clever.

Quoting ManuCH (Thread starter):

It's real as far as I can tell. The tiniest amount of electricity in the right spot will trigger muscles accordingly. However, I can't imagine this being approved by the FDA.

Hahaha - yeah, that post. I follow engadget religiously and lol'd when I saw that.

It is a joke.

Put the youtube video up on full HD and watch the eyelids - they are definitely CG. They picked a good guy to use, though, because if you watch his blinks, he shows very little signs of other muscles being used, but there is a definite difference between the real blinks and the CG blinks.

Lastly, try blinking really fast (and you're not even blinking half as fast as you need to) for 5 minutes straight. Thats all that is needed to convince yourself its not real. That is completely ignoring the impresiceness of the blinks as well (yes, I know, they are supposed to be electronically triggered) - mechanical glasses will always be more accurate and timed better when it comes to speed and precision and I don't think your muscles would co-operate for a whole movie.

Edit: Also, notice the tags engadget used when posting it: "humor", "joke" and "funny", among others.

The above post is my opinion. Don't like it? Don't read it.

Has anyone been to that one rollercoaster in MGM (I think,) the Rock and Rollercoaster (or something along those lines)? In the line to get on, there are 3-D videos in there that looked very cool to me. You didn't need glasses and it looked very realistic. The screen was back against the wall and there was a window you looked through (that created the 3D effect I believe.) Hard to explain if you never seen it.


Ironically I have never flown a Delta MD-90 :)
