Adobe Flash Player: 3D support in 2010

3D is the next big thing. At least, the film industry would like you to think so. Whether or not you agree that 3D is the next logical step after HD, the push for 3D shows, movies and video games is being felt by consumers.

According to Thibault Imbert over at ByteArray.org, 3D has been teased for the Adobe Flash Player. The event titled ‘Flash Player 3D Future’ is scheduled for October 27th. The article says that it’s going to be big, and that we should forget what we have seen before.

What will this mean for consumers? For many without 3D televisions or monitors (which at this point is everyone but the richest tech fans) this probably will just mean an upgrade to the Flash Player engine with the 3D gimmick which will remain inaccessible to most.

For developers it means that the Flash Player will be keeping up with modern trends, and it will potentially provide a new suite of tools for programmers to play with. Which may in turn provide new products and ways of experiencing media for the end user.

What do you think about the newest trend of 3D? Would you buy a new monitor just to experience the effects of 3D through the flash player? Let us know in the comments below.

    Dude – wrong type of 3d! Thibault Imbert is talking about 3d polygon rendering – the kind of thing games developers use to create first person perspective games. Not 3d as in Jaws III and green and red glasses.
