When I was young, getting the whole “3D” experience was a mission.
First, we had to wait for a 3D movie. (The young’uns take it for granted now, but back in the 80’s, I believe exactly two 3D movies were released per year.) Then, we had to trek to the only theatre in town that was screening this type of movie. And after spending about the price of a Coach wristlet on popcorn, candy and drinks, we had to wait in line, don silly-looking glasses and pray that the movie lived up to the hype.
Today, we simply take a seat on the couch in our living room.
This year, Christmas came early with a Toshiba 55″ Passive 3D Television with LED Backlighting. I actually gushed about the quality of the picture last week in a post entitled Be a Holiday Hero: Toshiba 55″ Passive 3D Television. In it, I posted photos that were actually taken from my TV screen, rendering ridiculously high quality images. Let’s just say I’ve been spending a lot more time in the ol’ living room.
And did I mention we were also treated to a Toshiba 3D Blu-ray Player? Yup, the Blu-ray pleayer works with the Passive 3D Television to create an experience so realistic, we’re tempted to reach out and touch the air.
Mom as Holiday Hero? Oh yeah.
So essentially, on any given Sunday evening, you can find my guys lined up like 3 stooges on the couch.
Yes, this is as much fun as it looks. …
