Gene Dolgoff of 3-D Vision thinks everything you watch on TV should be in 3D, and says he has a solution to make it possible.
It may sound a bit crazy until you realize it’s all coming from the guy credited with inventing digital projection and the world's first LCD projector.
"We're solving the problem by making a box that converts all two dimensional content into 3D instantly, immediately," Dolgoff said. "So now you have unlimited content from your satellite, cable, Blu-Ray player, DVD player, game system."
The box figures out how to shade things, place things and size things the way we see them while watching 3D. For example, objects farther away look smaller, darker, a bit more out of focus, which then appears 3D when seen through special glasses Dolgoff and his team also created.
Developers insist only a small part of the magic happens through the powerful computer, and they're actually relying on an even more powerful, more complex compute you already own—your brain.
"Taking all these factors into account allows us to produce stereoscopic pairs that have a lot of correct information but not totally correct,” Dolgoff said. “The part that's not correct we discovered the brain has an algorithm that corrects for it."
