3d TV Made Simple? Answered

Okay so, 3d tv works by darkening the glasses over each eye at the refresh rate of the tv right? But wouldn't it be easier to have the tv just morph the image a little tiny bit to the right and left like 70 times a second? Look at the pic.

Your perception of 3D happens in your brain - this is because your eyes individually see a slightly;y different picture.

As a result your brain can assemble a 3D perception.

If you see the same picture with both eyes - even if that picture changes you do not get the same effect on your brain so your idea will not work.

It is a fact that with one eye closed your perception of depth is severely restricted this is one reason why sports shooters train to keep both eyes open to increase they sense of depth to the target.

Yep. In fact, the 3DTV's *do* alternate showing the two images -- so if you try looking at a 3D program without the shutter glasses, you'll see exactly what you've proposed, and discover that all it does is make the image fuzzy and a bit jittery. You need the shutter glasses so each eye is seeing only one of those two images.

Google Wigglevision!

At least, I think that's what it's called.
