Time - That was ESPN talking about the future of sports in 3D back in January of 2010, when it announced it was launching a channel dedicated to them, ESPN 3D. It went live on June 11 of that year. And now, almost exactly three years later, the company has apparently concluded that 3D sports don’t have much of a future. It’s decided to shut down ESPN 3D by the end of this year, blaming low demand among consumers for the channel’s brief run.
From mobile phones and computers to television, cinema and wearable devices, the display of full-color, wide-angle, 3-D holographic images is moving ever closer to fruition.
Don’t be duped into thinking that sky-high ticket prices mean you’re getting the best possible 3D experience when you go to the movies.
Our snapshot test showed the 3D viewing experience to be far inferior to the standard 2D alternative across the majority of seats.
