Will 3D tablets are really useful? On such a small screen looking at 3D images will be actually more interesting.

While games and movies are currently the big draw for this type of device, just imagine having a readily portable tablet or smartphone type device available for 3D engineering functions in the field.

PC or any computing devices are always running out of processing power due to ever changing user needs, this will also improve the performance of viewing for the users but simultaneously it will put a huge demand of power on the GPUs.

Will heavy exposure to exaggerated 3D effects in games and movies cause people to start missing normal 3D cues in normal vision? I know that games can be used to train people in operation of complex devices (airplane simulators for instance). Is it possible that the exaggerated 3D effects in games will dull responses to normal 3D cues in vision? If so, there could be safety implications.

3D games seems to be the most compelling application for 3D IMHO. I just don't see 2D to 3D movie conversion as the big must have unless it REALLY looks compatible to native 3D movies.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
