Maybe Next YearCNET 100: The maybe next years This is the tech that we've been eagerly waiting for, and it's still not here.
Who hasn't dreamed of enjoying 3D movies without fumbling for an annoying pair of glasses? This year has seen glasses-free 3D tech--most notably the Nintendo 3DS and a Toshiba Qosmio glasses-free laptop--but there are still challenges. Viewing angles are a big concern: anyone who's used a Nintendo 3DS knows how perfectly you have to hold your head in place. Large-screen implementation is also a challenge: the larger the screen, the harder the 3D experience is to replicate. The Toshiba Qosmio pulled it off on a 15-inch screen, but we still have a ways to go before hitting a living-room home theater size.
