(MSNBC)   James Cameron has developed a new type of 3-D movie camera. Broadcast sports, pay-per-view ... think of the possibilities. *cough, cough* Porno. *cough*   (msnbc.com) divider line 81

The question I have is will they charge more at the door? The reason DVD has taken off is that I can BUY a movie for the same amount as two tickets to the theater.

In regards to 3-d, I'd be suprised if it becomes all that popular as long as you have to wear glasses. Everynow and then an article comes along about some advancement in holograms or something that makes me think that if 3-d is every truely going to happen, it'll be in that form.

3D porn sounds great.

The thought of 3-D porn is allful frightening. Imagine the Hedgehogs johnson coming (or cuming) right at ya.

3-D porn? I once saw some pics of a chic with 3 DD-sized boobs. Does that count?
 
2003-04-10 08:38:35 PM  
You know those cheesy plastic lenses that they use on some movie posters and video covers? I reckon that if we could develop micro versions of this lens, realistic 3D without glasses could be possible.
 
2003-04-10 08:38:45 PM  
Yeah, but does it actually look 3D or does it just look like a multicolored, distorted mess like the BS 3D glasses movies?
 
2003-04-10 08:39:16 PM  
James Cameron? Great, now we can have shiat in all three dimensions. What times we live in.
 
2003-04-10 08:40:40 PM  
Bah, for once I read the article. You need special glasses to view it, so unless you like sitting in a fap house with special glasses on, your shiat outta luck.

It also means you cant download it from kazaa.
 
2003-04-10 08:42:05 PM  
Of course, I forgot about "Jaws 3-D." I saw that in the theater when I was a kid. That was pretty awful.
 
2003-04-10 08:42:29 PM  
Woo-Hoo! Something I know about. I'm actually running Ghosts right now (I'm a projectionist/tech at the IMAX here) and we're having a member screening this evening before the film opens tomorrow.

I'll give Cameron credit, the film is very well put together. The 3D effect is actually done well too, considering it was filmed digitally and transferred to film stock.

I'll put it this way - all those wealthy idiots with too much money who spent 15k (or was it 30k?) to dive down to the wreckage of the Titanic wasted their money. The images are crystal clear and, coupled with the 3D effect, the audience gets and incredible look inside the Titanic.

Hey, I'm rich! I'm having a new 3-D theater built on my house. Also, production is underway for the 1st 3-D porno. When it's finished, you're all invited!!! ...and yes, kittens will be supplied.

3-D porno? How about just get a real woman and have actual sex instead?

IMAX doesn't use those BS red and blue quasi-3D glasses. The glasses audience members use, in most cases, are actually polarized lenses (there are pieces of polarized glass at the projector as well, so when a viewer puts on the glasses their polarized lenses actually correct for the parallax and the person is given the illusion of 3D. It's actually quite realesque)
 
2003-04-10 08:46:33 PM  
Cameron already knows any major communications medium will be used for pornography in some way. Anyone here ever see "Strange Days"? He produced it, and it was released in 1995 before the internet-boom/porn-boom really took off. It features a virtual imaging system that allows you to see & feel whatever the recorder saw & felt. And yes, most of the tapes being passed around were porn. It takes place in the last two days of 1999, so it is a little dated now, but definitely worth checking out.

And yes, if this goes mainstream, 3-D porn won't be far away...
 
2003-04-10 08:46:49 PM  
But can his new camera make Celine Dion look 3-dimensional?
 
2003-04-10 08:47:28 PM  
For Lunatic Tassle -



Some (hopefully SFW) 1-d porn.

Anti_Freak_Machine -
Yes, you do need special glasses. That said, the article makes reference to Pay-per-view and sporting events, I take that to mean it could be broadcast to a standard (or at least HD) TV.

James Cameron:

created deep-depth underwater cameras for Titanic.

created "Morphing" for T2 (bad guy coming from the checkered floor) that most movies use now.

created other special effects used for the "water aliens"

gave us Jessica Alba in Dark Angel

"3-D porno? How about just get a real woman and have actual sex instead?"

Haven't you realized that almost all of man's technological advancements are attempts to replace women? Just look at the internet, home video, polymers, etc.

Well, that's better. I've only seen 2D movies at the IMAX theater here, so I wasn't sure how they do it.

Cameron didn't develop jack shiat. He just put his name on it.

It is a well-documented fact that certain things spur technological innovation.

1. War
2. Space Travel
3. Porn

Porn was the major reason why VHS won out over Beta formats in videotape.

Porn is the major interest of the internet. Downloading porn is responsible for much Broadband use and DVD burners.

Porn (or pr0n) is here to stay. Just wait till we have "brainstorm" technology. (obscure 1983 movie reference)

BTW, can anybody guess what famous Fark cliche was in Brainstorm? Hint: You've just been pranked! I have a fever, and the only cure is more cowbell!

Gosh...that...looks like a...really good movie...
 
2003-04-10 08:54:41 PM  
One of the downsides to 3d porn is that unless it is edited very carefully, a lot of the most dedicated porn freaks may wind up feeling inadequate. Or at least ducking a lot.

Gonna save Hollywood with this...WTF is he thinking. He'll get more mileage with DVD and large screen home theatres. Also makes it ripe for a DVD rip.

In other news... music sales down 7% in the last year - blame theft...hahaha... blame crappy music you music industry wankers.

(Rooters) WEST HOLLYWOOD, CALIFORNIA - A man watching an X rated video involving a new 3-d filming process developed by James Cameron is filing a lawsuit for personal injury, lawyers revealed yesterday.
A test audience member of the process sanctioned by the National Adult Film Directors Association is suing both the Association and James Cameron, for injuries he recieved during the screening of an upcoming Peter North release filmed in 3-d, tentatively titled "Cock and Awe".
Apparently, the man, identified only as "Herman," claims to have sustained head injuries after jumping out of his seat and stumbling to the floor where he struck his temple on a reinforced concrete tissue dispenser.
Herman, speaking from his home where he was seen wearing a cast of some sort on his head, elaborates:
"It was totally involuntary. It looked like the rope of flying man chowder was coming right at me. All I could think was 'Damn, this is a brand new shirt!!' I couldn't help ducking."
A court date is still pending.
