As the final part of our 3D week, Clive, Joe and James sit down to discuss 3D with Nvidia's senior EMEAI PR manager, Ben Berraondo.

The team pose Ben a range of questions about everything from why people should be using 3D to whether or not it’s just a gimmick and what we can expect to see from 3D in the future. We also discuss what’s holding 3D back from catching on in the mainstream.[break]

Ben also takes the time to actually explain how game developers go about adding 3D to their games and what Nvidia does to help them and make sure their implementation is tip top. It was also interesting to hear about how 3D technology isn’t just about gaming, but can also be used to help people who have problems with their vision.

The debate about how long we'll have to wait for glasses-free 3D also raises its head, with Ben predicting that it’ll be a good five or seven years before you’ll be able to ditch your special glasses.

As ever, the bit-tech podcast features music by Brad Sucks, and was recorded on Shure microphones. You can download the podcast direct, listen in-browser or subscribe through iTunes using the links below. Also, be sure to let us know your thoughts about the discussion in the forums.
