As with everything in entertainment, content will make or break the product. Not enough 3D content to really drive this yet. Also having to use glasses is a drag. Why not just buy a pair of virtual 3d glasses(LCD glasses) and put a nice potted plant where the TV would have gone?
2010 has been a year of 3D. It will continue to 2011. Sony 3D technology has been improved substantially in 2010. I can foresee there are still some ways to go. On one hands, the critical mass is the cost of the 3D glasses. If the cost can be dropped to a quarter of what it is now or even no glasses, the chance of 3D TV thriving will be substantially higher. On the other hands, the availability of "software" is one of the keys to the success of 3D TV. The personal 3D camera and camcorder will likely help. Movie makers have to create more and better movies which better utilize extra information provided by TV.
Going back to the article, apps store on a TV is an interesting concept. I believe Google TV is offering, isn't it? Does Apple TV offer apps store?
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
