Ron and AmyJo Proctor has a great tutorial on how to make 3D movies using 2 portable camcorders and Adobe Premier to overlap/filter the videos:

3D LCD HDTVs Spamming CES 2010!

I talked to many bloggers and journalists at CES 2010, many of them thought there was too many 3D HDTVs.  Literally, 3D HDTVs “spammed” the whole show, everywhere I went there was at least one 3D HDTV including Samsung, LG, Toshiba, you name it.

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s a great thing but I think there were too many at CES 2010.  But couple of them stood out, I liked those 3D LCD HDTVs that could be seen without 3D glasses. (Yes, without them!)  I forget which companies did that but I have videos/pictures so I will let you know.

Roku HD Review!

Roku HD player maybe something you need if you have good internet connection and you are STILL using cable or other expensive ways to watch HD movies.  (Perhaps you still “rent” movies at the store.)  Believe me, I am actually one of those old types even though I am an early adaptor.  I use non-HD cable box from Comcast along with a physical membership to my local Blockbuster.  I have been waiting out until I move to a new house so I can set it up new with an LCD HDTV but my 5-year old DLP TV works just fine for now, plus it’s super light, fractions the weight
