3D TVs died before they had a chance to get good – I think it’s time for them to come back

“What Happened to 3D TVs?” a fellow dad asked me this past weekend as we each watched over our respective offspring at a fifth birthday party. No doubt he was just having a polite conversation, but little did he know that he had just stumbled upon one of the many technical topics that fascinated me far more than I probably should.

You see, even after all this time (manufacturers like Samsung released their last 3D TVs in 2015) I’m still mad about the whole sorry saga. A story where manufacturers, so desperate to sell us flagship TVs with new technologies, pushed 3D with the insistence of grandma pushing Bourbon biscuits, despite the fact that it was nonsense at the time.
