South Korean electronics device manufacturer LG has revealed that it plans to increase sales for 3D notebooks by 30% in 2011. This shows that the company has obviously placed a huge amount of faith in the new stereoscopic 3D trend which has begun to sweep the market. 

Reuters reports that the company has plans to increase its 3D notebook sales to 1.1 million in 2011 and forecasts sales of a staggering 13.8 million units in 2015.  
"With the availability of more 3D content, consumers are enjoying a new experience, and we think that'll drive growth of the 3D computer market," Harrison Park, LG's mobile communications PC business team leader, commented.
Interest in 3D content and 3D enabled devices as increased considerably since the release of Jame’s Cameron’s Avatar in December 2009 and the broadcast of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in 3D on selected networks worldwide in June and July.
Although some have criticised stereoscopic 3D imaging for not offering true 3D content, arguing that it is more an optical illusion than video in three dimensions, manufacturers such as LG, Sony and Samsung have put their weight behind this new technology by investing large amounts of money in their new product lines.
