3D Glasses? Who Needs Them

3d Audience

Get ready to toss those 3D glasses sooner than you expected. That’s right, Toshiba has announced plans to debut their glasses-free 3D televisions worldwide come April. They’ve already been selling the technology to Japanese vendors since December, however those sets were limited to the 12 to 20 inch range. Instead, the TVs hitting North America in April will reportedly be 40 inches on up — so expect a hefty price tag. 

I know many of you have been calling it a fad, or have simply tried  to ignore it, but it would seem the 3D market will be around for awhile. You probably won’t be able to blame porn for this one. Instead, the blame probably rests with studios like Pixar, and the kids who refuse to watch anything but their latest 3D “masterpiece.”
