    ESPN in 3D

    Looks like "Jumbotronicus" has sparked the brains of the ESPN Networking team. I don't even think I could have the patience to watch an entire game with those glasses on..

    What hardware do you need to view '3-D'?

    yeah the glasses are the biggest down side to this stuff right now. not sure 3D is cool enough for me to sit in my living room with those glasses on.

    The whole thing screams "the jerk," with millions of cross-eyed sports fans coming out of the woodwork from the glasses.

    I am assuming that you would just need the specialized glasses for their specific 3-D setup.. Last year, NBC broadcasted 2-3 shows in 3-D on one particular day as part of a marketing gig, and most of the local newspapers included the glasses for it..

    That's what I'm wondering. I know that some TVs are labeled 3-D ready. Not sure what that means. I just bought a TV too and never thought anything of it haha. I hope it works.

    Will you need to wear the glasses?

    Yes you would still have to be wearing your specific glasses for you to experience the images "popping" out of the screen.. Your TV would only "enhance" the experience as opposed to someone who had a basic LCD, etc.. TV
