2010 is the year of 3D.

If you didn’t already know this about 2010 then you’re in complete denial like I am. Everything from movies, TVs and video games will be moving to the third dimension and now books could very well be on their way, too.

Researchers at South Korea’s Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology have been developing 3D software technology for books over the last three years. To date, they’ve been able to animate two Korean folklore children’s books. Certain pictures will trigger animations for those wearing 3D glasses, but don’t expect to see it in books any time soon, says Kim Sang-cheol, team leader on the project.

Kim says the tech will likely hit smart phones and museums first.

I don’t need all my business to be 3D. What about you guys?
