'In 2009, 3D became a pretty big deal in the movie industry. Thanks to Avatar, people finally started taking the format seriously – it was no longer just for ‘kid’s animation movies’ and it wasn’t just made up of ‘cheap and tacky effects’. Say what you like about James Cameron’s land of giant blue dudes, the 3D effects in that behemoth of a film were quite stunning.
Almost a year later and 3D has exploded on the cinema screens, the popularity of 3D has seen it expand into gaming with the impressive looking Nintendo 3DS and a stunning array of PlayStation 3 titles. Watching movies at the cinema or playing a game is often seen as a ’special treat’, a quick way to pass a few hours and have a good time. Watching TV is far more common; here in the UK we watch plenty of live sport, documentaries, films, music concerts and plenty else. How about all that in 3D?'
