3D Viewing Goes Interactive

Matthew Poppe (cq) and Jay Jayaram look at the camera head they have developed at 3D4U, a Pullman tech company. The camera takes a 180 degree stereo video image which can be panned and zoomed by the viewer of a live event or of a pre-recorded video. (SR photo: Jesse Tinsley)

In late 2005 Sankar “Jay” Jayaram was hurrying home with a bag of groceries, chatting with a friend on the phone. He was planning to watch a Seahawks game when he got there. Jayaram told his friend, “I wish I could be right there at the game, or have the ability to feel like I’m there at the game.” At that moment he stopped and realized it wasn’t a daydream. “I knew we could do that,” he said at his Pullman office, where he and a team of co-workers are trying to give consumers a different way to enjoy sports or entertainment events/Tom Sowa, SR.

Question: Given the choice, do you prefer to watch movies in 3D?
