Now this is cool! I love home entertainment and 3D television is potentially the next big wave in home movie viewing but, current models of 3D TVs require the viewer to wear those awkward 3D glasses that cause me to get a headache after a few hours. But thanks to Japanese electronics giant Toshiba, 3D glasses are about to become a thing of the past.
Toshiba will unveil three models of the television, which will cost several thousand dollars, before Christmas, according to Yomiuri Shimbu.
The company has developed a new system that emits a number of rays of light with various angles from the screen so that viewers can see stereoscopic images without glasses, the daily said.
“People can enjoy images in three dimensions from various positions and suffer less stress,” it said.
Japan’s major electronics makers launched 3D television this year, but sales have not been as strong as expected while many customers have complained of being irritated by the glasses.
However, a Toshiba spokeswoman said: “We are not in a position to make any announcement.”
