      Re: Waive goodbye to the 3D TV

      I've been looking around for other articles on these and trying to find out what the price is likely to be.

      According to 3D TV Watcher, Sony plans to launch them in November, landing in Europe just before Christmas. They are likely to cost around 480.

      For those worried about wearing their own glasses with them, the video in the link from the first post clearly shows that they are calibrated to the wearer. I would trust that this is to allow your eyes to focus too.

      480 is a lot of money so I would have thought that at this cost these are for the serious home enthusiast, even though I wear glasses I can't see myself ever buying a pair because still have to be convinced that you are not going to get any side-effects with them likes headaches and the like.

      Re: Waive goodbye to the 3D TV

      I believe that the many developers have taken note of complaints such as headaches associated with watching 3D.

      It is too soon to know whether they have cured it with this product.

      I would agree that 480 is a lots of money. Another issue is that often people get interrupted whilst watching the TV. A simple knock on the door could be quite strange. The guy delivering the Pizza might get a bit of a shock as you open the door, looking like a Cyberman (or Cyberwoman ).

      I didn't like the cable that was connected to them. I guess that the next version will have to be WiFi compliant. This would also open up the door to multiple units being used within one home.

      I was thinking earlier what it would be like if someone videoed you whilst Wimbledon 3D was on.

      This is true and some are already available to purchase.

      I'm not sure how well this works, but click covered it recently.

      Other ideas under development include Holographic TVs and even higher resolution screens.

      Another development is an agreement to standardise glasses between manufacturers. This means that from next year you could use your own glasses at a friend's or relatives' home.

      LG has a range that uses the same glasses that you are supplied in the Cinema. This means that you can get a lot of cheap glasses for the whole family and never need to worry about batteries.

      Now if only someone can be convinced to stop popping the lenses out...

      Re: Waive goodbye to the 3D TV

      That video has gave me a sinking feeling in my gut that my 60" 3D TV is less than a year old but already nearly cnsidered old hat. Bad times? I wonder if I could use these with my samsung TV probably not.

      Re: Waive goodbye to the 3D TV

      If your TV is this year's model, then I believe that the glasses will be using the correct standard to be compatible with new TVs made by other manufacturers from next year.

      Several manufacturer's have decided to standardise their glasses so that you can wear your own 3D glasses when you are visiting a friend. Considering that they can cost over 50 a pair, this is good news for some people.

      good read.....

      Funny, i was gonna jump on the 3D bandwagon earlier this yr but - Little thing in my head said -

      hold on for another yr.....They WILL get proper glasses free 3D tv's and/or holographics will play a part in this.

      I personally am not to fussed with the tv side till they iron out all the little niggles and settle for one thiing or another - now the gaming side is opening a whole new level of gaming - if they do it right.

      This will be another 2yrs away i think - they are still gauging public feedback from the 3D tv's - which frankly, is pretty poor so far ( if you look at statistics ).

      But once the glasses free 3D tv / Holographics come in, then you will see a massive rise in public demand for it - esp gaming
      Roll on the next 2-5 yrs - sweet
