3D TV finally falls down dead

David Katzmaier:

LG and Sony, the last two major TV makers to support the 3D feature in their TVs, will stop doing so in 2017. None of their sets, not even high-end models such as their new OLED TVs, will be able to show 3D movies and TV shows.
Samsung dropped 3D support in 2016; Vizio hasn't offered it since 2013. Other smaller names, like Sharp, TCL and Hisense, also failed to announce any 3D-capable TVs at CES 2017.

Good riddance. I've had a 3D TV for years and have never used the feature. I was never even tempted once. It was just so obviously a gimmick from day one -- one whose main purpose wasn't to enhance content, but rather enhance the wallets of those who make the content.
