Google Android Studio Vs. Eclipse: Which Fits Your Needs?

Sene Re:I've been using Eclipse since before it was Ecl (140 comments)

I agree with this, the simulator is horribly slow, even on a core i7 with 12GB of RAM. I guess the arm emulation is not very well optimized.

MIT Develops Holographic, Glasses-Free 3D TV

Sene Re:"Almost" within range.... (98 comments)

Unfortunately the screen is not even translucent anymore and the light sources would make the screens behind the first screen not really visible thus ruining the effect. Meaning LCD is pretty much a requirement here.

Sony's Solution To Split-Screen Multiplayer

Sene Re:I gotta hand it to them. (157 comments)

I would assume that it will be tricky. Also if one player is in completely light area and another in completely dark would strain the screen like crazy.

Sony's Solution To Split-Screen Multiplayer

Sene Re:I gotta hand it to them. (157 comments)

This is currently only 2d for 2 players. So the same 120Hz refresh rate is enough. For the next stage 240Hz is required from the screen already, and also what you mentioned, a load of power to push all those images in HD resolution.

Sene Re:I gotta hand it to them. (157 comments)

Indeed, old idea that has been tossed around in the net for quite some time already. Next phase is of course 240Hz 3D tv that allows two player 3D gaming from the same screen.
