On Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys supplemented the 3D football game they were playing with the first-ever 3D images from the giant screens hanging about the 3D football field.
And it didn’t go well.
Multiple folks in attendance at the game told us that the gimmick eventually was booed, loudly.
Chris Jenkins of the San Diego Union-Tribune writes about the razzing. And Jenkins points out a larger problem with the excessively large televisions at Cowboys Stadium.
“Watch,” one of the Dallas writers told Jenkins. “Nobody’s watching the actual game. They’re all looking up, watching the game being played right before them on the scoreboard.”
It’s unknown whether the next 2D-to-3D software process will rival the red-blue spectacles experience that new 3D technologies can generate. But we’ve got a feeling that neither will be on display in any Dallas-area football stadiums in the near future.
