Good news for all you middle-class 3D TV enthusiasts out there, cheap 3D glasses are finally coming to a home near you. RealD glasses aren’t going to be limited to the theatres any more. I am sure many of you have had the chance to sample the pleasures of 3D television at your local tech store and enjoyed it, but your hopes were shattered when you discovered that on top of that lovely 3DTV you would also have a tacked on price for battery-powered glasses, that cost a couple hundred dollars.
Sure Glasses-free would be the cheapest way to enjoy a 3D viewing experience but sadly technology is just not at that level yet, so cheap glasses will just have to suffice for now.This all thanks to RealDs announcement at the 3D entertainment summit that it would license its ZScreen technology (pictured above) to 3DTV manufacturers.
The big question of course is how much will these 3DTVs cost, and how will the 3D quality experience compare to what active shutter glasses can offer. Even if price isn’t your main concern then at least you enjoy the much lighter glasses for extended viewing your favourite TV show or movie, also–no need to replace batteries, ever.
