Well, it's certainly not the Wii. I'd imagine your TV is just converting what's on screen to be 3D compatible.
And if that's not how 3D TV works, you're just trolling us.
I turned on Mario kart wii today and accidentally hit the 3d button on my remote. Shockingly, it actually displays in full 3d. Did anyone know the wii had this capability?
Trust me... I love trolling, but thats not what I'm doing right now lol. I see no way that the tv could convert it. It only receives the image, no information about the depth. I just tested it on smash bros as well. It works on there as well.
The Wii absolutely does not produce a 3D image.
I really wish you could come here and see it then, because these are absolutely 3d images. My tv is the LG 47LW5600. It uses the new passive 3d technology, which means instead of needing a signal that switches between the two images and uses active glasses, it uses scan lines and passive glasses. Because of this, there are no requirements for higher bandwidths on the signal. There is literally no way for the tv to post convert the image... no computer is powerful enough to analyze an image and interpret depth from it in real time. To the best of my knowledge, there is no program capable of doing this even if the computer was powerful enough.
Instead of writing this post off as trolling, I suggest you do some research on it. This is absolutely 100% true, and for some reason I cant find a shred of evidence online that supports my claim. Every link I find about it just talks about the Wii U supporting 3d.
The wii its self does not out put the 3D that people think of
The games may be in 3D worlds, but them them selfs are not 3D display wise.
3D is a fad that needs to bugger off again like it did in the 80s
It's not that it is a 3d world. It is displaying with depth. i.e. the ground in mario kart can visibly be seen to stretch off into the distance. Even the menus in brawl are 3d.
And no, 3d is not just a fad. In the beginning, we had black and white televisions, then we invented color tv's to better match reality. We brought sound recording into television and movies to better match reality. We invented widescreen televisions because our real vision is panoramic, not square like the traditional set. We invented HD because the definition it displays better matches what we find in reality. We use high definition audio because it matches what we find in reality.
The fact of the matter is, depth is a part of reality. The technology may not yet be perfect enough to become big yet, but it is only a matter of time. Nothing will stop the human race from achieving a more realistic portrayal of reality. You can argue against it all you want, but it is only matter of time before the level of technology meets the demands of the general populace.
... It's a fad, lol. Without a doubt. Regardless, I'm certainly not saying I want it gone or arguing against it's existence, I plain-don't like it, simply put. Even if you don't want to accept it fits the definition of a fad, it's certainly a gimmick. It's a 100% unnecessary technology for TV, as is HD, Blu-ray and even color. 3D is nothing more than a wow factor. It does not make TV or Movie entertainment any better, unless you enjoy said gimmick. And if people can't enjoy something without gimmicks, I would generally stereotype them as a bigot.A fad is any form of behavior that develops among a large population and is collectively followed with enthusiasm for some period, generally as a result of the behavior's being perceived as novel in some way.
So as my own logic follows, a large portion of a society(s) is needed to create a fad and/or gimmick. Thus, I come to the conclusion that the most common level of intelligence in every society, is a bunch of bigots. Most fads created by said idiots are most likely going to be gimmicks to entertain such simplistic minds, and therefore nothing of true quality or brilliance.
In short, fads and gimmicks like 3D are unnecessary conversation pieces spawned by the stupidity of humanity, or simply globalized by said idiocracies. Regardless of whether or not a fad in question is a gimmick or something genuinely worthwhile should be left to each individual case (3D will ABSOLUTELY have scientific uses once it's advanced enough), but for the most part, fads like 3D aren't worth the money or time for consumers to experience it repeatedly. Unless you're a sheep and jumping on the bandwagon is your idea of fun, but that's for another time...
POINT BEING! 3D entertainment is, in essence, fail.
