Commercial Break: 3D TV gizmology reveals secrets behind dusty old paintings

15 April 2010

3D TV is coming – you can’t ignore it. Before long we’ll all have 3D telly in our homes and the effect will be so earth-shattering that we’ll even start seeing real things in 3D once we’ve switched off the box. No, really.

In this fascinating and educational infomercial, Rich Fulcher (of Mighty Boosh fame) takes a closer look at some of the art world’s most iconic works, using Samsung’s state of the art 3D technology, revealing some previously unseen hidden sub-plots that you’ll barely believe.

You’ll never look at Whistler’s Mother with the same contempt again.

    Gimmick. HD is useful as you open up a huge backlog of classics that can be re-scanned to a higher resolution. 3D, currecntly with those hillarious glasses and in the future with screens with their special coatings (most of which at the moment are sub 720P in detail) is just a gimmick.

    @ joe Not sure I see why HD is any less of a gimmick that 3D.
  • Andy D.
    Yeah, nice one Samsung. Make an advert then stop people from seeing it. Fucking idiots. I'll dig out an alternative from somewhere...

    @ Gadget 4free! Can see your point but HD can have a noticable improvement in picture quality on larger sets or projectors. HD works for me, you don't need it but it's a nice to have. 3D just seems like a massive gimmick at the moment, they tried it in the 50's then the 80's now it's time to try it again! The only people who really seem to be shouting about how great 3D is, at the moment, the TV companies trying to flog you another TV (£2k), a new Blu Ray player or PS3 (£230) and 4 pairs of active shutter glasses (£130 each). I can't wait to watch Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in 3D with my mates for a reasonable £3k spend.
