At CES, Larry speaks with Ray Zone, a leading 3D pioneer since the early eighties, when he started producing 3D comics.

Ray Zone has been an expert and advocate for 3D since the early 1980s. A pioneer in the field, he is responsible for more than 100 3D comic books, along with plenty of movies and other 3D productions. His interest in 3D began in 1953 when, at age 6, he started reading 3D comics starring Mighty Mouse. He has been converting flat art to 3D for 25 years and has worked on many feature films. He's now involved in the revolution to bring 3D to TV.
I caught up with Zone in the 3D exhibit area of CES where he took a few minutes to share his enthusiasm for the artform and the technology. My favorite quote from the interview: "I'm very happy to have lived to see this day. I'm happy to be part of this coming of age for stereoscopic imaging."
