Of all the companies pushing 3D, none is more heavily invested than Sony. After all, the company doesn't just make the stuff that shows it - televisions, Blu-ray players and video game consoles - it also actually makes the stuff that's shown, through its television and movie arms. Sony is thus alone in purveying 3D on all levels: production, distribution and display.
Understandably, 3D dominated the company's press conference on Wednesday at the Consumer Electronics Show. As well as the usual televisions and Blu-ray players, Sony is putting the technology into virtually all of its new products, including laptops, camcorders and even Bloggie mini-cameras.
But Sony and its rivals have acknowledged that the current generation of 3D is only a stop-gap until the technology everyone really wants - 3D without the glasses - finally arrives.
With that in mind, the company also showed off a prototype visor that allows the wearer to watch 3D content without glasses, and in total privacy to boot. The visor, which looks like something Cyclops from the X-Men would wear, fits onto the viewer's head and features a set of headphones for sound.
