Now I’ve heard everything but I guess it was only a matter of time.
What will $4,000 upfront money and $20 a month there after buy you? A 60-inch 3-D television that has a compact computer server, and shutter glasses that synch with the screen to trick eyes into viewing in 3-D was unvailed at an AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas over the weekend by Bad Girls.
AFP. LAS VEGAS, Nevada — A 3-D mania stoked by stunning new television sets and the blockbuster film “Avatar” is being embraced by a porn industry notorious for helping new technologies access homes.
Bad Girls In 3D used an AVN Adult Entertainment Expo that ended Sunday in Las Vegas to unveil an unprecedented online library exclusively in the format and a first-of-a-kind “turnkey digital 3-D viewing system.”
“For several decades, the adult entertainment industry has driven adoption of every significant new entertainment delivery system – the VHS home-video craze in the 1980s, the satellite television mania in the 1990s and the present day Internet,” said Bad Girls producer Lance Johnson.
“2010 and beyond will be all about 3-D.”
Adult expo attendees wearing “active shutter glasses” grinned as they immersed themselves in a Bad Girls video displayed in 3-D on a giant high-definition television.
The firm’s package consists of a 60-inch (152-centimeter) 3-D television; a compact computer server, and shutter glasses that synch with the screen to trick eyes into viewing in 3-D.
The Bad Girls system is priced at 4,000 dollars, and a subscription to the online video library costs 20 dollars a month, according to a woman at the booth that gave only her first name, Samantha.
The potential of 3-D in adult entertainment was proven decades ago by a soft-core 3-D film “The Stewardess,” which raked in 27 million dollars in theaters during the two years after its release in 1969, according to Johnson.

I took the family to see the James Cameron film Avatar last night, the film was in digital 3-D and it was amazing! By this time most everyone has heard about or seen the movie so I wont go into too much detail other than to say that it was the best visual effects movie I have ever seen.
Usually I am not one who goes and sees 3-D movies, I feel that 3-D is a gimmick, it doesn’t add anything to the plot and it takes away from the enjoyment of the experience because you are waiting for the next flying monkey to leap out from the screen to hit you in the head. This was not so with Avatar, there was nothing gratuitous or superficial about the effects, Cameron played it straight which made the movie watching that much more interesting and intense.
The colors and textures on screen were intense and leaped out to fill the senses as if you were on the far off and distant world of Pandora yourself.
After seeing Avatar, Cameron should be the odds on favorite to walk away with a bushel full of Oscars come March.
The movie ended rather typically of a major blockbuster in waiting, that is to say that a sequel isn’t to far off in the future. As a matter of fact while surfing the web I found this bit of news that seems to state that Cameron planned Avatar to be a trilogy.
