    there's nothing special about 3D screens. 3D TVs are 100hz instead of 60hz. NVIDIAs active shutter technology, "NVIDIA 3d vision" requires monitor with at least 120hz refresh rate, which most of us gamers have anyway. In-fact 120hz never caught on, so most high refresh rate monitors have 144hz or faster displays.

    Yeah, and the saddest thing is, they did stop 3D when it was going to get real fun with OLED, 4k, HDR and HFR... With today's 8k panels, HDMI2.1 and LG's passive technology things would be great.

    I was 10 years old, it was 1993. Nobody reading this would probably believe this but I myself came up with the idea of using liquid crystal glasses to filter two separate video streams into the eyes using a time controlled system. Initially the purpose was to enable two people in the same room to watch two separate programs on a single screen by wearing a pair of these glasses which would filter the correct frame from the correct show to the person who wanted it and each wearing headphones so they could hear the show they wanted.

    Those 3D TV's were way ahead of their time. I worked at Best Buy when they started all the 3d stuff and it was ridiculously expensive. I remember we had a 50" 3D Panasonic Plasma display that was like $2,600. And each pair of glasses was like $150. Like you said in the video, it probably would do better now since tv prices have plummeted since then.

I convinced my parents to get a 3D tv back in like 2008 or something and they handed it down to me just a month or two ago and it's such understood technology. Get a 3D screen and a movie designed for 3D and youll be a fan, that is unless you get headaches.

And they started the channel so that Gav can have a visa to come to USA?? *Incredible*. This is literally the most wholesome channel I ever found. (can some long time fan please verify this info and please feel free to add to some of my knowledge).
