WOW that would be sweet, if and when that ever would happen, that I may be able to enjoy. I can imagine disconnecting from virtual world would be become a little more difficult. ;-)

Do you know I had completely forgotten about that -- I did see the adverts staring George Takei who - of course - played Hikaru Sulu in the original Star Trek series on TV. Can you imagine this sort of thing on a 52" 3D SED (Surface Emission Display) TV?

Max, I assume that you may be also aware that Sharp is already marketing a forth color (yellow, RGBY) implementation as a quantum improvement over RGB monitors, with claims of 3D visualization improvements. http://www.tested.com/news/rgb-vs-rgby-does-adding-yellow-really-improve-tv-image-quality/1004/ So the two additional colors would be next logical step, but like everything that is evolutionary. It will be a slow process of adoption by market forces and our wallets. In full disclosure, not it is significant for this discussion, I do own Sharp products, so a partial bias may be self-evident; but I am not a rep, employee or associated with Sharp other than as a consumer.

Hmmmm -- I'm not an expert here -- I'll try to see if I can find a display (LCD vs LED) expert to comment

Max, do the same limitations apply to LED screens? (as they have brighter and purer colours, I wouldn't think so?) No doubt the same techniques could be used though, you can get LEDs in any colour you like these days...

All I can say is that traditional TV and computer displays that are based on three primary colors (using RGB pixels) are “So 20th Century, my dear!” Can you imagine watching the Super Bowl on an HD display of this caliber? I want one!

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
