There is no doubt that 3D technology is booming today with lots of new 3D films hitting the theater. The massive success of Avatar has led more people to check out a 3D film and more and more theaters around the country are looking to add 3D capability.

The catch is that 3D projectors are very expensive costing in the area of $150,000 to $175,000 per screen according to Occulus3D. The company has announced a new device called the OculR system that can turn the standard projectors already in a theater into a 3D projector for $20,000 to $25,000 per screen.

The device works with all standard 35mm projectors and works with cheap polarized glasses for viewers. The device is a new lens that is easy to install and provides a minimum brightness of 6 foot lamberts. I'm not sure what that means, but it sounds bright.
