God bless technology. Those cutting edge manufacturers are coming up with yet another way for us to spend the money (we probably don't have).

Yes, according to the L.A. Times, we are on the brink of new technology that will bring 3-D into our living rooms.

"After decades of eyestrain and nausea-producing experiments that involved flimsy glasses from cereal boxes, a grown-up version of living room 3-D might finally be ready. This week at the huge Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, several of the big guns in TV manufacturing -- Sony, Panasonic and Vizio, to name a few -- will be showcasing 3-D-enabled sets and other gear that they hope viewers will embrace."

Spurred on by the recent successes of 3-D movies such as "Up" (awesome movie, BTW) and "Avatar" (hottest blue people since the Smurfs, my friends), and a new Blu-Ray player that could play 3-D discs, AND a European satellite TV provider that plans to launch a 3-D channel this year, it seems sitting in your living wearing some goofy glasses as Barney from "How I Met Your Mother" high-fives right in your face could become the norm (and can I get a "What What!" for possibly the longest sentence ever this side of the blogosphere?).

Of course, 3-D TV has its skeptics. And there is the looming question of "Um...do we really need 3-D in our living room?"

But it's some interesting tech-food for thought.
