MmMm Sweet Delicious Widescreen Stereoscopy

for only a ridiculous sum of money (over $8000) you can have an awesome stereoscopic widescreen display!
apologies if this is already old news for everyone here, but the way this is done is pretty cool.. the price of this thing doesn't matter.. this is the kind of tech that is just waiting to be shrunk down to headgear size...
This display can be used simultaneously by multiple users, sitting or standing, and they'll see the same quality image because there is no "sweet spot" anywhere on the screen.
Planar's SD2620W produces amazing wide-screen WUXGA (1920 x 1200) 3D images and delivers comfortable, full resolution to both eyes for stunning stereo imaging.
the science that makes this work is also at work in many cinemas today.. in my case when I watched Avatar in a 3D IMAX theatre.. the glasses they gave me to watch the movie weren't anaglyph (red and blue) but polarized. The 3D effect was slight but noticeable, but supposedly there are 'sweet spots' in an IMAX theatre and I was sitting off to the side and up high, so.. not the best experience.
i won't bore you all with the nitty gritty technical bits, you can find them all here, with helpful diagrams:
*if you have a mattress full of cash, perhaps you'd also be interested in the Planar UltraRes 3D 4K LCD Display. Yes folks, it's an 84" screen at Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) resolution... that displays 3D. I would probably have to change my pants after watching certain 3D movies.... or maybe just wear some adult diapers.
