We all noticed just how quickly the talk escalated around 3D when Nintendo released the 3DS, but, while many still consider whether or not 3D technology is worth of the investment for the home, let’s think about what a glasses-free 3D experience could really mean. Mobile devices are already getting involved with the movement, and with companies like Toshiba already beginning to release glasses-free 3D TVs to the public, we may be getting close.
Sure, the screen sizes weren’t magnificent as they only came out with 12- and 20-inch models, but it’s the fact that we’re getting closer and that the technology is advancing that really revs the proverbial engine. But, in certain, illustrious segments of the market, we’ve seen models that offer the glasses-free 3D visuals on screens upwards of 65-inches. While there may not be many that believe it will stick, it’s no doubt that a tech revolution of that magnitude will create some serious waves.
Many are speculating that we’ll begin seeing shelves full of 3D televisions that don’t rely on glasses within the next two years. That should do plenty to excite a market that has obviously shown interest in the technology, but are simply a bit apprehensive regarding diving in until the market has settled a bit. Either way, once there are 70-inch 3D TVs that don’t require specs to get the effect, I’m all over it.
