I don't think you know what Luddites means. If we were Luddites, this article wouldn't exist BECAUSE IT'S ON THE INTERNET.
It only took three years. http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/8/3852452/death-of-3d
I mean, it's like many people didn't read the article. 3D did more or less win - it's still around and still being sold, you're just not hearing about it. It's ninjaing its way into your homes, and that's still market penetration, that's still sales, that's still some measure of success.Now we can argue usage, sure - everybody has 3D TVs, but nobody uses them - but the tech is clearly not dead if it's still being sold in large volumes.
I want to know when we're getting Google Glass. I haven't heqard much about it in a while. I want my personal eye-ball visor screen thing.
I'm not certain what sort of definition of "dead" you use, but when a feature is no longer the central pillar of a marketing plan, no longer the central feature of your product and has remarkably stagnant utilization amongst consumers, that's dead to the tech industry.
I'm pretty positive 4K will gain traction, particularly when it comes to desktop monitors. But the uptake will take quite a long time as the content ecosystem catches up. But the economy of scale is there, so 4k is inevitable.
