Avatar Director Reveals Plans for 3D on Smartphones

By Michelle Caruso-Cabrera

James Cameron says making a movie that grossed more than any other in history is better than winning an Oscar. At least that’s what he told me on the stellar panel I had the honor of moderating in Las Vegas at the annual Wireless Convention. When asked if grossing more than $2 Billion offset not getting the Academy Award, Cameron said in the end, he’d take the money.

He along with Biz Stone, one of the founders of Twitter, and Aneesh Chopra, White House Chief Technology Officer, all spent an hour taking questions from me with an audience made up of members of the wireless industry.

Cameron says the next phase of 3D technology is coming to phones because it is actually easier to produce on phones. We need 3D glasses at the movie theater because the screen is so large. But apparently, our brains can process the 3D image without the glasses. He explains why far better than I can. You can watch him discuss it here.
