3D in 2010 and Beyond: Thomson Reuters Report on Patent Applications

The good folks over at Thomson Reuters have done an analysis of global patent applications and by their reckoning 3D is comin' at ya in a big way and soon!

Three areas showing a great upswing in patent activity are 3D television (Ralph Kramden's long-delayed desire may finally come true*); 3D digital photography and 3D cinema (projection systems & specialized glasses).

Here's the link to the complete PDF report.

*In a classic Honeymooner's sketch "TV or not TV" originally aired on October 1, 1955, Alice wants Ralph to buy a TV so she can watch Liberace. Ralph's reply is that he's "waiting for 3D TV" before he'll buy a set.
