  • 3D displays: At the beginning of 2010, many companies lunched their 3D displays. For example, Samsung and ViewSonic both combined the latest NVIDIA 3D Stereo technology to introduce a new 3D LCD Monitor,respectively. 3D TVs: Sony 3D TV •LX900 series    built-in 3D sync transmitter with two pairs of active shutter glasses •HX80R series    3D compatible with built in Blu-ray Disc Drive/HDD and LED backlight all-in-one
  • 3D Mobile: Released in South Korea in March, Samsung's W960 mobile phone comes with 3-D video content, generated by Dynamic Digital Depth that can be viewed without special glasses. Dynamic Digital Depth expects that its software to convert 2-D games to 3-D on the fly will be built into phones within the next two years.  3D movies: The growth in 3D media is allowing cinema to enjoy its best period, with proving grown-up 3D movies such as Avatar, Alice in wonderland, Shrek Forever After.
  • 3D videos: Amid the excitement of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, Sony supports FIFA’s production of never-seen-before 3D coverage of the thrilling action of 25 games from South Africa, by using its state-of-the-art 3D technologies. In addition to awesome goalmouth action and the colorful facial expressions of players, this coverage is delivering to people around the world a 3D experience of the dreams, thrills and joy generated by football. 3D games: The Nintendo 3DS is an upcoming  portable game console  by  Nintendo , which can produce " 3D  effects without the need for any special glasses" via a process called  autostereoscopy . It will be released in Japan on February 26, 2011 for ¥25,000, and will succeed the  Nintendo DS  series of handhelds, [6] which primarily shares the handheld console market with  Sony 's  PSP  (PlayStation Portable).
  • For example, Samsung, one of the biggest names in the field of consumer electronics, introduced its own line of 3D enabled televisions at the held Consumer Electronics Show this year. Just recently, Samsung released the prices of its 3D television series which includes the LED 7000 Series, that has a starting price tag of $1,999, along with the LCD 750 Series and the Plasma 7000/8000 Series that are a lot more expensive than the LED 7000 series.
  • Benefit: With the runaway success of the 3d craze with films such as Avatar and Up, as well as other blockbusters, many television manufacturers are beginning to develop home 3d televisions so the general public can enjoy that immersive experience in the comfort of home. From 3d sports to high quality movies, you'll be able to put yourself in the film or game, as long as you pick the right unit. Plus, a person feel like you are truly part of the motion.
  • The transforming power of science and technology within the evolving knowledge society is linked to growing ethical problems. Techno ethics denotes a broad range of ethical issues revolving around technology—from specific areas of focus affecting professionals working with technology to broader social, ethical, and legal issues concerning the role of technology in society and everyday life. Nanotechnology may copy physical objects and end material scarcity while redefining the concept of property. Autonomous robots will spark debate over liability and their legal status. The exploration of space will pose new questions of property and legal jurisdiction.
  • Some viewers may experience an epileptic seizure or stroke when exposed to certain flashing images or lights contained in certain television pictures or video games. Viewing in 3D mode may also cause motion sickness, perceptual after effects, disorientation, eye strain, and decreased postural stability. We do not recommend watching 3D if you are in bad physical condition, need sleep or have been drinking alcohol. Watching TV while sitting too close to the screen for an extended period of time may damage your eyesight. Watching TV while wearing 3D Active Glasses for an extended period of time may cause headaches or fatigue. Wearing the 3D Active Glasses for any other purpose , may physically harm you or weaken your eyesight.
