dude, i could totaly hook a porjector up to my PB, then display it on a gigantic oval screen (i guess i would have to fabricate that myself out of fiberglass) so $1000 for a good projector $200 for fiberglass work. . . that leaves 18800 for a lense to make it project well on the display!!! heh

I was going to buy one but the price is actually $20,598 not just 20 grand. Maybe I'll wait till a coupon shows up on Amazon or Dell or something. :rolleyes:

Anyone heard of Real-D?

They make projectors that shoot out images at something like 120 frames per second onto a special silver coating. Gives the real impression of 3D. They achieve this cool effect by polarizing each subsequent frame and the user wears special polarizing glasses that filter out each image. No more funky red/green colored glasses or flickering glasses that cause headaches.

Adapt this to real world LCD desktops and I think we have another revolution on our hands.

They look pretty cool, I just emailed them for more information..... I'll post it up when (if) I get an email back :)
