one of which happens to be the Wynnsong Theatre in west Knoxville. 3ality, the same company that brought us U2 3D (yeah, I missed it too) earlier in the year, has been toying with broadcasting sports events (among other things) in 3D for some time now. On Dec 4 the company worked with its partners to broadcast the Raiders / Chargers NFL game to an invite-only showing at a handful of theaters in major US cities. This was such a hit that apparently the next step was the college National Championship game. The technology is interesting in that its signal rides over the same 2D infrastructure as other broadcasts instead of requiring a completely new one. This opens the possibility that you may one day be able to watch such events in your living room… providing of course that the TV manufactures step up and start creating 3D ready sets. In the mean time though, tickets for the event are $20 (get them here) and promises to be a fun time. As of this writing tickets are still available; let me know if you plan on attending!
