For the longest period of time watching 3D movies has required the use of glasses, even on the newest 3D televisions. Toshiba plans to market the world’s first 3D television later this year that will eliminate the need for wearing glasses.
Toshiba has developed a new system that emanates rays of light with various angles from the screen allowing viewers to see stereoscopic images without the use of the 3D glasses. “Many people don’t like to wear glasses to watch TV for a long time, especially people who wear glasses,” said Yuko Sugahara, Toshiba spokesperson.
Many electronics companies have been investing in the 3D technology over the years. With the making of movies with the 3D experience, new televisions will really pay off for consumers. The hassle of buying the glasses and making your home dark enough to watch shows will be a thing of the past.
Rival companies like Panasonic and Sony currently have 3D televisions on the market. However, the television of Toshiba’s rival requires glasses. The 3D televisions already on the market that does not require glasses are intended for store displays only. They require the viewer to stand in specific spots for the 3-D effect to emerge, and the image quality is much lower than that of screens using glasses.
The Daily Yomiuri Shimbun stated, “Toshiba would unveil three models of the television”, which will cost several thousand dollars, before Christmas.
