Dang all those early adopters of 3D TV with glasses must be pissed now!
Baka-akaB  +   1859d ago
not really . The tech hasnt caught up yet in quality compared to glasses based tvs .
And they still enjoy 3d right now .

Besides the more consumers , the more and better 3d content available .

Led-Zeppelin no I'm loving my 3dtv. When I bought It I accepted the fact this might come along.

But the tech has got a long way to go before viewing angle is sorted out and making the image more like 3d with glasses than just bit of added depth.
newhumanbreed  +   1859d ago

Almost every electronic company has glasses free tv's in development. Only Toshiba has released theirs so far.
DualConsoleOwner  +   1859d ago
toshiba is not well known for TV and their glassless tv has viewing angle problem.

i would wait for glassless tv from Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, LG, Pioneer. those TV giants.

as Cnet says one that Sony is releasing late 2011 has wider viewing angle.
Boody-Bandit  +   1859d ago
Don't you just love comments like LZ's?

Yeah because all those that purchased 3D displays that require glasses will all up and stop working once the glassless models hit retail. WOW

Comments like that are so cliche. Why take shots at early adopters that want new technology now instead of waiting, waiting, waiting and waiting, for something better to come along? I have news for you. When you walk out of a store with the latest and greatest anything? Bigger, better and more bad ass latest and greatest(er) is already in production and about to hit the store shelves before you can blink.

Let's all go back to rotary phones and dial remoteless black and white tv's while we wait for glass(less) 3D. Anyone want to play pong?

"The TV will be available by year-end 2011."

This video didn't say that, it said this was a cool tech demo and it's a ways off yet before we'll be seeing these. Anyone know where the "year end 2011" came from?

At any rate, I don't think people who purchased glasses based 3D need to worry. Glasses based 3D still offers superior quality and depth compared to these screens, and something that 3D glasses are able to do that these glasses-less screens is make it seem like images are coming right out at you. Glasses-less screens will always just be like looking through a window. Not even close to the same level of immersion, even with the glasses.
Microsoft_Spokesman  +   1858d ago
Glasses based TVs are RIDICULOUS.
Pros: It's cool to have 3D for those few games and movies early, you can show off to your friends the cool tech you have.
Cons: Wearing glasses on top of your reading glasses, wearing glasses indoors, the glasses make the images much more darker, you need to recharge the glasses or get new batteries, you gotta pay $150 per pair, you can't mix and match TVs and glasses, if you have a large family or have a big party you will most likely not have enough glasses for everyone and cinema 3D still outperforms TV 3D.

To all early adopters, I know it sucks that you blew $1500 + many other fees to be an early adopter but it's comical to see them trying to defend what they bought. I'm glad I waited for the 3D and will most likely wait even few more years after the glasses free 3D TVs.

People need to be patient.
HolyOrangeCows  +   1858d ago
At least they're keeping their options open. But I doubt that glasses-less TVs will take off as fast as the normal setup, due to expense and view-angles being so awful on glasses-less 3DTVs.
GWAVE  +   1859d ago
Woot woot! PS3 3D game compatible?
newhumanbreed  +   1859d ago
I read that the new tv's make anything 3d compatible. Meaning that game developers don't have to develop in 3d.

simulation is never as good as the real thing.
Certain model 3D displays can simulate anything into 3D and although it adds depth it's not even close to movies and games made in 3D. It's like watching a 480p DVD upconverted to 1080p. It might look a little smoother but it's not hi def.
Peppino7  +   1859d ago
It is awesome but from what I understood, glasses was ridiculously expensive and still far away from being put into homes.
pain777pas  +   1859d ago
Sit back and relax. No hurry really. I will get a 3D TV once they know what they are doing. This is what everyone wants. 3D without glasses. This is an investment I can get behind if you can disable the effect at will.
fr0sty  +   1859d ago
the 3d effect isn't as good as with them, and you can disable the 3d effect on any 3dtv, glasses or not.
kneon  +   1859d ago
Well I'm interesting in one particular feature that will be available using glasses long before it ever comes to glasses-free 3D TVs. That feature is full screen local multiplayer. Rather then using the glasses for 3D they are used to show each player their own full screen. It's much better than getting 1/4 of the screen for each player.
DarthBigE  +   1859d ago
better start saving now. well for me at least lol
Dragon_Hiko  +   1859d ago
Wow, simply wow. I remember reading articles only a year or so back that said we would literally have to wait 10 years for 3d without the need for glasses. All I have to say is I am continually amazed at the advancements in technology, it keeps getting better and better faster and faster!

Hey Sony... Vizio is bringing out a $300 3DTV. Can you please price match it?
showtimefolks   1859d ago | Trolling | show
divideby0  +   1859d ago
No... unless you really need glasses, the only thing Vizios have going for it is the price. Which is fair if you are in the market for a cheap, low end HDTV.. Sony dont do that, as others do not

If you know anything about LCD/LEDs and put the Viz to the does NOT compare to the Sony...
Zachmo182  +   1859d ago
Yes that may be true. But Vizio has some good tvs for thr price and they are better then some of the more expensive ones.

But yes sony makes great tvs...I was at sams club not to long ago and i saw this sony tv on display and i was just like wow that shit makes transformers look fake

a few days ago i was asking someone that
and now we have it nice i can waite a few years since i just bought my TV

so hopefully in 2-3 years this without the glasses tech improve and become better

and people this is the reason SONY'S NAME HOLDS A LOT OF VALUE WORLD WIDE. People expect nothing but the best from sony and WW wise they deliver
PS360PCROCKS  +   1859d ago
YESSSSS!!!!! So glad I waited. Although it's Sony so we're talking what $5000 for a 55"?
IcarusOne  +   1859d ago
At least. Usually take the market price, which would be about $5k, then add $1k for the S, $1k for the O, $1k for the N, and $1k for the Y.
Zir0  +   1859d ago
Finally Sony learns how to do 3D the right way. Once these become affordable 3D will become the new HD.

Chris399  +   1859d ago
Yes, Sony who made the largest market push so far for 3D tech,
"are learning how to do 3D the right way." Anyone with 1/2 a brain or an eye for the tech, KNEW that auto-stereoscopic tech would replace stereoscopic. It was simply a matter of time. But you have to build consumer awareness and interest first. Sony spearheaded a great deal of that at their own expense.
Arup02  +   1859d ago
The technology sure is advancing fast.
disturbing_flame  +   1859d ago
Few months ago Sony said the technology to make 3D without glasses was merely impossible on this generation.
Today they announce a 3D free Glasses TV.

Yes technology runs fast.
Or maybe communication around it.

Who knows ?
FrigidDARKNESS  +   1859d ago
The reason why they said that because they have to sell all those 3d tvs to sell with glasses.
FrigidDARKNESS  +   1859d ago
WOW!....theres going to be a lot of butt hurt consumers who over paid for those 3d glasses and most likely we will see tose sony 3d tvs and glasses on Ebay and Craigslist.
Biggest  +   1859d ago
No, there won't be. These TVs will be above $5000 at first. They're limited in viewing area and ease of use in comparison to the currently available 3DTVs. It'll be a few years before the price is closer to what current 3DTVs cost (and many people here complained about THOSE prices).
jukins  +   1859d ago
really because i only paid little over $1000 for my set with glasses and im enjoying it now. like the guy in the video said we MIGHT see this in our homes in 2-3 years and you can bet it gonna cost more than $1000. i think the only ppl "butthurt" (so immature) are the ppl who cant afford but badly want 3dtv
GamerSciz  +   1859d ago
I just recently in the past month bought a 40" Sony 3D LED-LCD TV with the 3D Sync transmitter, 2 glasses, and a 5 year product warranty and a $200 nice tv stand. After all that I only spent around $1800 after taxes in total and through SonyStyle store I have 36mo no interest. So am I upset 3D tvs without glasses are coming? No...because I won't be able to afford even a 26" Glasses less 3D tv. I am happy with the decision I made and GT5 and Motorstorm 3D Rift are quite fun in 3D.

IcarusOne  +   1859d ago
What you said makes no sense. Glasses or not, 3D adds eye strain. It's the nature of the tech.
Black102WingS  +   1859d ago
I hope there aren't any side effects to this technology.
Dlacy13g  +   1859d ago this is funny shit. Last year..Sony says buy our 3D TV's with glassess...and 1 yr later...Oh yeah, well now you can buy our better TV without the 3D glassess. NICE!!!

Don't get me wrong...I am very happy to see this tech moving along so fast. 3D TV without glassess is the future direction for the tech... I just feel sorry for all the early adopters who bought into this WAY TOO EARLY.

again use your brains guys .
nothing to be sorry for , everyone knew it was coming , glass are still better (and even cheaper) for the foreseable future , and folks with 3dtv are actually enjoying 3d content , while you dont and wont for 1-3 more years depending on the price .

Darkshader  +   1859d ago
Based on history, when HDTV 1080p came out the price is around 2.5K - 4K. It took 3 yrs to get the affordable $1,500 and below. So same will happen to 3D HDTV. We will have to wait for 2 - 3 years for price to really go down. And i cannot wait to purchase one of these 3D HDTV.
GoldPS3  +   1859d ago
3D is nice and all but I don't need it to enjoy games and movies. My crappy 26' Vizio does the job just fine til I can buy a Sony.

Now thats what I'm talking about, we don't need no stinking 3d glasses for 3D HDTV.
Tony-A  +   1859d ago
There goes Nintendo's argument.
bananlol  +   1859d ago
Indeed, i would be really surprised if the psp2 didnt utilize this technology. With all the 3d backing sonys ben up to the past year it just wouldnt make sence if their newest platform didnt support it. Its probably the only reason we havent heared anything about it yet.
Tony-A  +   1859d ago
I agree. Although Sony mentioned that 3D has no place for the handheld market, I could see them going back on that either way, depending on whether it's worth the investment or not.

I applauded Nintendo for doing the no-glasses approach for the 3DS, but this turns their argument completely against them. Most journalists I heard from E3 mentioned that moving anywhere other than directly toward the 3DS screen would literally turn it from an enjoyable experience to a sickening one.

Sony was able to apply 3D without glasses AND make sure that watching from different angles didn't make you puke? No wonder why they've been pushing 3D so hard.... turns out they had this under their sleeve.
bananlol  +   1859d ago
Yea, it would be better if sony let nintendo test out the market, working on perfecting the technology and then release it at the same price the 3ds have. Waiting about a year would allow them to do that without selling the units at a loss. If they combine this with a decent media campain then they shure can give nintendo a run for its money.
Soldierone  +   1859d ago
Hey where is that A hole the flamed me in another topic about glassless 3D TV's not coming around anytime soon....I need a punching bag anyways.
hazelamy  +   1859d ago
what i want to know is how?
how can they deliver 3d to somebody and they can still move about and get the 3d effect?

they're delivering separate images to each eye, and they're a few inches apart at six feet or more from the tv, given how precise they'd have to be in aiming those images, how can the 3d still work if you move?

move a couple of inches to the right and you left eye is now getting the image aimed at your right eye.

the only ways i could see it working is either somehow they've got alternating fields so every few inches you get alternating images for the left and right eyes, and you can move so long as you move into the right set of bands, so the left eye sees the left image and vice versa, or they have several sweet spots, but then you'd have to stay very still in those spots.
or they have some sort of head tracking camera that adjusts the viewing angles.

or they've got some new system i haven't even conceived of.

i have to say though, what's wrong with glasses? to those who say they wouldn't watch 3d tv with glasses, what if your vision went bad so you had to wear glasses all day, would you rather live in a blurry world than wear glasses?
Sugreev2001  +   1859d ago
I'm kinda pissed,because I recently bought a 46" Bravia LED non-3D tv coz I hate wearing the glasses and they're pretty expensive as well.
PR_FROM_OHIO  +   1858d ago
And this is why i haven't made the jump to 3D just yet.
