As you’ve probably noticed with a lot of the 3D TVs that coming out, there is a common issue as far as 3D glasses go and that is coming up with a design that doesn’t need them. We previously brought you news of the Bang & Olufsen’s 85” 3DTV for which glasses still need to be worn.

Today we bring you news of a new screen that uses glasses free 3D technology. The screen’s technology is reportedly designed by a group of four men who used to work for Philips called Dimenco. The screen is said to have unique 2D depth.

According to the article at Nissho Electronics, they are the company who will be selling the 52” LCD panel that has 1080p 3D capability without the need for glasses. It features 60Hz refresh rate, 700 nit brightness, 8ms response time and a 2,000:1 contrast.

Because the initial asking price is as high as it is, it will apparently be aimed at businesses to start with. The screen will cost over $20,000 or ¥1.7 million which puts it a little on the expensive side, but maybe that’s the price we have to pay for the hard to get glasses free 3D technology.

Would you pay this much for the 3D viewing?
