Toshiba Cell TV to convert 2D to 3D instantaneously

Toshiba talked about its Cell TV at CES 2010, TVs based on this technology will be capable of converting 2D images into 3D instantaneously:
A TV with 480 hertz in 2-D mode can be converted to 240 hertz for each eye when in 3-D mode. That’s good quality. The Cell TV will take anything 2-D like games, movies, Blu-ray films, TV shows — and convert it into content you can view with 3-D glasses. The Cell TV will have built-in Wireless HD networking as well, so you can transfer high-definition video around the home.

If the TV takes off, then it will be the second major platform to take off with the Cell chip. In 2010, Toshiba is introducing 10 new series of TVs. The series include the Toshiba, Cinema, and Cell TV models. The Cell has eight processing engines and can do 200 gigaflops of processing. That’s about 10 times more powerful than a typical PC. The chip can eliminate noise from pictures, convert 60 frames into 240 frames each second, and otherwise spruce up your picture on brightness, contrast, color and other details.
