CES in 3D!

I just returned last night from four days at International CES in Las Vegas. Quite a fun trip- and the biggest thing this year was 3D. Supposedly 3D is going to be the new HD and we're going to all have 3D TVs in our homes in a few years. Sure, I was skeptical about the future of the technology, but the success of "Avatar" has everyone excited, and I do think the technology has potential- especially once they figure out how to do it without the glasses.

People I've been in the same room with in the past 72 hours: John Legend, Stevie Wonder, Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn, Intel CEO Paul Otellini, Ron Jeremy, Maria Bartiromo, Aziz Ansari, Shrek (well, a guy dressed as him), and a female taxi driver who offered to set me up with prostitutes within the first ten seconds of my getting in the cab. I'll get into some of these stories in the coming days.

Another thing I noticed- the douchebag quotient of CES has risen considerably, I've found. Sure, that's Vegas all the time, but CES used to be the provence of nerds. And yes, the line between "hooker" and "booth babe" has continued to get thinner and thinner as time has gone on.

Myself not having been at CES, you would know more, but my understanding is 3d w/o glasses is still quite a ways into the future, and the 3d with glasses is still a silly novelty - tell me how CES has changed your opinion that makes 3d a reasonable reality?

I consider 3d tv the segway of this decade.
