3-D Computer Graphics are graphics that use a three-dimensional representation of geometric data that is stored in the computer for the purposes of performing calculations and rendering 2-D images (as noted by Wikipedia).
A 3-D film is a motion picture that practically bursts out at you. Take this for example. You're watching an extrememly intense movie and some guy (in Animation) that is, jumps out of a building as it explodes in a burst of flames! Just then, the burst of flames pops out at you as if you're really in all that action! Now wouldn't that be enjoyable. But then you ask yourself, how could all this be possible? How could I be watching a solid screen yet feel as though all that is bursting oiut on you! Well it all starts with the enhancement of of the illusion of depth perception.
A special motion picture camera is used to record the images as seen from two perspectives, with special glasses. But in a case wear you don't need glasses, each eye is used as the two perspectives. Also special projection hardware, are used to provide the illusion of depth when viewing the film. Cool ain't it? This information was also taken from Wikipedia, only put into my own words.
Ahh, my favorite part of 3-D, video games. This game system ABSOLUTELY revolutionizes gaming! Just imagine it, you're sitting on a bus, train e.t.c., and you're so bored. Just sitting there playing your normal Nintendo DS, DS Lite, or DSi, tired of the same old thing. But, just to think if you had this Nintendo 3DS, you could do many more things!
You could play video games in 3-D! Yes people, 3-D! One of the best things to hit mankind since feature length animated movies. Which, by the way, Walt Disney was first to accomplish. Anyway, there are also a few cool, new, and enhanced games that come with this 3DS.
- Kid Icarus: Uprising
- Mario Kart 3DS
- Kingdom Hearts 3D
- Metal Gear Solid 3D: Snake Eater
- and other remakes of various pre-released games
Also, the Nintendo 3DS was also announced to be able to play MOVIES... in 3-D! Yes folks, it seems impossible, movies that were never even released in 3-D now able to be played in the three dimensional form by the Nintendo 3DS! Why it's... (sheds tear), so beautiful.
And that's 3-D for you! Awesome!
