I was just reading an interesting article in ars technical on Ninetendo's 3DS and thought I'd chime in:

It looks like the limitation for 3D might not be so much the technology, but user limitation (people with astigmatisms, eyes that aren't properly aligned, people who only have one eye, and so forth). I have no idea how many people fit this category, but if it is sizeable, it could have some sort of impact ...

In any event, the 3DS producer was quoted as saying "We're moving away from any stance that says if you don't use the 3-D functionality you can't play the game." The writer of the article indicated that this might mean that 3D might be used mostly for aesthetics, but not for vital information needed to help the player play the game.

While augmented reality or 3D hologram projection might be a ways off
from practical widespread use, you can bet that the race for
glasses-free 3D technology is on. As I've posted before, Nintendo has
figured out a way to at least well-fake 3D on a flat screen using 3D
field depth rendering (on sale Friday). Given the hype around 3D
HDTVs, it's only a matter of time before more manufacturers of
handhelds and perhaps large screens start adopting and improving on
this technology.

I think the biggest obstacle is going to be who finds it useful.
I see it having application in data centers. Having worked at one of
the 5 largest data center storage companies, I've seen the process for
swapping out rack hardware, for swapping disks, etc. and putting the
right A's into the correct B's is sometimes a daunting task.
