I've really been thinking about screens lately. We have a lot of screens in our lives...movie, tv, computer, phone. We stare at a lot of screens. Are screens good? They are basically restricted visual spaces. They tend to use our fovea and little peripheral vision. I think there are too many "screen situations" in our lives right now, so a "movie" of the future would have to do away with the screen. 3-D might be the first hole in the screen...but there has to be more.

For example in computing. Quite frankly, unlike in a movie, we really don't use the full screen in an application. We're usually only using a small small part of it, to click or type and send information. Yes, the whole screen updates, but only parts of it are useful to us....even in a game.

The social media has been directing us back to conversational modes of entertainment. You say something. I say something back. This contrasts with the oratory style. You say something for a long time...and I listen. Novels, radio, movies, tv, even web pages without comments. These are all oratory.

As cinemas and theaters of all kinds around the world have jumped on the 3D bandwagon, operators of dome screens, both film and digital, have largely been on the sidelines. For most, that’s by choice, as the 2D documentary and feature content available for film or digital fulldome systems meets their programming needs and revenue goals. But others, struggling with persistent declines in theater attendance and revenues, wonder if having 3D could boost their business. A handful of dome screens theaters have addressed this head-on by installing digital 3D projection systems to project a rectilinear image in a large “window” on the dome screen.
