At Sony Style’s flagship store in New York City last week, a room full of bloggers, local press and people curious about 3D were treated to a full demo of Sony’s new 3D HDTVs. Right now, Sony Style Stores are the only place you can demo Sony’s 3D televisions and many people took advantage of the opportunity at the event during Social Media Week.
It was amazing to watch people put on the active shutter glasses and react like kids in wonder at something they’re seeing for the first time. This was the case over and over again as even the skeptics of 3D for the home were in aweHere’s a video of the event and the reactions people had as they watched everything from a clip from Sony Pictures Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, a FIFA soccer match, and PlayStation game previews in 3D.
My favorite moment of the night was watching one attendee reach out and try to grab the image she saw coming at her! Even in the middle of a loud event with lots of people, the experience is so immersive that it can draw that kind of reaction.
You can also see Sony 3D at a Sony Style Store near you. There are 44 stores across the country so we hope you’ll visit one. We’ve set up Twitter kiosks stations so you can tell us what you think in real time.
There is so much to know about 3D, how it works and what makes today’s advancements significantly better than the 3D of decades past. My colleague and Sony Style blog editor Gina Campbell wrote a 3D Cheat Sheet last week that is a must read if you’re interested in understanding 3D better.
Thank you to those who endured the cold New York weather to experience Sony’s 3D. Make sure to check out the photo album from the night and tag yourself in the pictures.
