Toshiba Launches Glasses-Free 3D TVs in Japan!




One of the biggest complaints about 3D movies and now 3D TVs is the requirement to wear those uncomfortable 3D glasses. It's one of the biggest deterrents for me personally, and it's a big reason why I always look for the 2D versions of movies.

Avatar was one movie where I really felt the annoyance of the 3D glasses, and they actually ruined the entire theatre-viewing experience for me, as I spent more time being frustrated with the glasses than I did actually enjoying the 3D experience (if you can say that it is an enjoyable experience).

Anyway, it appears that our mass-complaints about the 3D glasses have been answered, as Toshiba has now released in Japan Glasses-free 3D TVs under its Regza brand, and these TVs are now going for the equivalent of $1,400 USD for the 12 inch 12GL1 model, and $2,900 USD for the 20 inch 20GL1 model.

Here's the story from a YouTube video by networkworld:
