When bad things happen to good technologies

Roger Ebert has a follow-up to the letter he published from Walter Murch on the various reasons why 3D remains a bad idea (previously discussed here). This time the subject is Maxivision48, a technology that, according to Ebert, "produced a picture four times as good as conventional film."

It's an interesting counterpoint, an innovation that has been getting great reviews from independent experts for a dozen years but can't seem to get any attention from the industry despite what seems to be a sound business case.
