There’s something about 3D glasses that drives everyone crazy, and while we always love covering tech conferences, there was something about Berlin’s IFA that really got our blood pumping… and that thing was Toshiba’s showcasing of glasses-free 3D technology that will definitely shake things up in 3D-land. The autostereoscopic utilizes filters to get the 3D effect, and when you’re viewing 2D content, you’ve still got quite a television screen on your hands. It’s a win-win for everyone involved…well, mostly a win for us…
The 55ZL2, for example, features WebPort, the cloud-based media functionality. With a bevy of Toshiba apps, USB connectivity for recording and content management, and of course, a full HD, glasses-free 3D experience, there’s no doubt that when these babies hit the market in December, there will be quite a few holiday lists that have them near the top. Prices have yet to be announced, which is probably a good angle to take, as we can all salivate before ever knowing if we can really afford it!
There are active and passive 3D units on the way from Toshiba, as well, but on the heels of news regarding glasses-free 3D home entertainment, it’s all quite common place to talk about 3D with specs. After all, 3D through glasses is soooo last week.
