You Won't Need 3-D Glasses To Watch Avatar In Your Car

3DGlasses150.jpgYour Monday morning is about to get a little better. 3-D technology company MasterImage 3D is in final negotiations with several luxury car makers to put glasses-free 3-D screens in their automobiles. This means that you and your passengers will not have to juggle sunglasses, 3-D glasses and you know, vehicular caution on your way to the supermarket. MasterImage is also in discussions with airlines to put their glasses-free 3-D screens in aircrafts sometime within the next three years. [THR]

    Kids today are so lucky. When I was young, the only 3D experience I had in a car was looking out the window.

    But kid's today aren't lucky Winchester. They aren't. This is bad stuff, constantly inundating the youngins with screens and "content" wherever they go. Talk to the rest of the family. Gaze out the window, watch the world go by. Open themselves up to experiencing real life, right in front of them.
    We have enough problems w/ kids getting addicted to tech w/ phones that play movies, netflix streaming, internet vids and DVRs. There has to be some space, some room in the world where you interact with people, objects, where you live the life you watch other people living on the screens. It's not a "way things oughta be" thing with me, I actually think this ubiquitous screen society is altering the way kids perceive life and the universe. "The world exists to entertain me at the snap of a finger and I should never feel bored or like I have to apply my mind, ever."
    Hope I didn't blind you with the earnestness.

    Btw, I know you were having a laugh dude. I just saw my younger cousins over Easter with their iPads and iPhones and between them they have, like ten screens they could watch "content" on when they all pile in the huge SUV they drive. Snark reactivated...now.

    They really need to invent a new font called "Sarcastirix" that will allow readers to understand when one is being a smart ass.
    We park our cars in the same garage, sir. I hate that kids are inundated with these screens constantly. Almost as much as I hate that adults are constantly fascinated by the same screens. I hate that TVs are practically a standard option in cars these days. I hate that kids are always on iPhones or iPads instead of interacting with each other.
    But above all, I hate the fact that I realize what an old man I've become when I complain about such things. That's the most frightening part of it all. Well that, and the fear that in less than 5 years we'll all have chips in our heads eliminating the needs for these devices entirely.
    Skynet, take me away...

    I remember one of the first ads for the PSP had a bunch of mindless zombie-like people walking down a city street staring at their PSPs. Apocalyptic stuff, that.

  • Martini Shark says:

    "Hey Dad, tell us that story again about how when you grew up you could only listen to music in your car on a "cassett". Did you really have to flip it over to listen to the other songs?!"

  • The Winchester says:

    By the way, the irony isn't lost on me that I wrote all these on my iPhone.

  • j'accuse! says:

    Indeed, good sir, we are of one mind. I'm in my twenties and I already feel old, so, that happens faster than ever before. Robots and SkyNet will be here enough, because of all the people who used the self check out lanes at the supermarket.
