There are a number of things going against 3D at the moment, the first is not enough 3D movies available, and the other is having to pay the high price of 3D glasses that can only work with a particular television. However, there is a way around this, the first is to purchase a glasses-free 3D TV, or the other is to consider a pair of XpanD universal 3D glasses.
The new glasses are now available to pre-order on Amazon for $107.67, thats cheaper than the expected $125-$150 price range. It is thought that with the release of such products there could now be an increase in sales of 3D-ready TVs, as the consumer will no-longer be tied to a specific brand of 3D glasses.
There is already a range of Sony, Panasonic, and Toshiba branded glasses that can only be used with their perspective TVs, but as these are often on the expensive side — this has made it a tough sell for retailers.
These active shutter XpanD universal 3D glasses are battery powered, and helps to bring the enjoyment of cinema to the home. I am still not convinced on the whole 3D things — I will wait at least a year before I say that I was wrong.
