As if sports weren’t exciting enough, now it seems that technology is making them even more exciting. ESPN broadcasting is about to bring you the world’s first 3D network. ESPN 3D is promising to show no less than 80 live 3D events in its inaugural year, to include FIFA World Cup matches, football, basketball and expanding to cover the X Games featuring skateboarding and rally car racing all live, and all right in the middle of your living room. Of course to have access to all this high tech wizardry you will need a 3D Ready Television, and some 3D glasses, and we’re not talking about the newest plastic ones that replace the cardboard red eye, blue eye numbers of yesteryear, we’re talking sophisticated battery operated shutter glasses and you will need a 3D ready set top box from your multichannel video provider. Discovery Communications is following right behind ESPN and has teamed up with the folks that bring you IMAX in the hopes of having their own 3D offering sometime next year. Unlike ESPN 3D, the Discovery Channel will have 3D programming available 24/7. I can’t imagine watching a game with the players running past me in my living room, it will be difficult to resist the urge to stick my foot out and “trip” a member of the opposing team, but I’m willing to grab a cold one, make some popcorn, and try to control myself! What are your plans?

Cisco who has recently acquired the company behind the line of Flip Video camcorders, are now back with a brand new release for you to part with your hard earned cash this holiday season. We’re talking about a new innovation in home video sharing with the device known as FlipShare TV. Touted to be the first of its kind in the industry, FlipShare TV will offer the user’s whole Flip Video library of photos and videos right smack in the middle of the family room over the HDTV screen – all done sans pesky wires running over the ground. This means you can always share your videos instantly with other FlipShare TV owners as well, any time, anywhere. Similar to its other Flip Video products, the FlipShare TV is a snap to set up and use. You will need to connect the tiny FlipShare TV base to the TV through the included composite cables or an HDMI cable, while the FlipShare TV USB key will be plugged into a USB port on a PC or Mac. Both USB key and console have been preconfigured to function wirelessly, giving you instant wireless viewing on the TV without having to work around a wireless home network. Couch potatoes will also love the included wireless remote that lets you navigate through the intuitive TV interface before selecting one’s favorite videos, custom movies, or photos and watch them in full HD glory.
FlipShare TV was specially designed to play nice with FlipShare 5.0, a brand new software from Flip Video which offers a convenient and easy way to organize, edit, and share favorite video moments online as well as through cellphones. Not oly that, you can also view videos shared by other Flip Video users on their own TV, thanks to automatic accessibility of videos shared via Flip Channels. Interested in picking one up for your living room this Christmas? You’ll need to pony up $149.99 for the FlipShare TV then.
