Hello Blu-ray 3D World!

A new article, rich in practical resources, by Oracle’s Michael Lagally and titled “Hello Blu-ray 3D World,” teaches developers how to write their own 3D Java “Hello World” application for a home theater using Blu-ray 3D concepts and the BD-J platform.

The article makes it clear how remarkably little is required to get started:

“First you need a Java platform connected to your TV. The good news is that you most likely already have a full-blown Java platform connected to your TV in the form of a Blu-ray player. The latest Blu-ray players are capable of displaying 3D content, and since the Blu-ray standard comes with Java 3D APIs, you are good to go.

Even if you don’t have a 3D TV or a Blu-ray player, you can still start developing and testing 3D programs. All you need, provided you own a Microsoft Windows computer, is free software and a pair of red/blue glasses (also called anaglyph glasses) that you can get for a few dollars.”
