Toshiba Corporation, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan and one of the leading technology innovator in the world, made a statement last Tuesday that the company is developing a new technology for a 3D television that won’t require the funny looking special 3D glasses. The Toshiba 3D television is expected to be released by the end of the year.
Yuko Sugahara, Toshiba spokeswoman, confirmed that the company was in the process of developing technology, but insisted to comment on a report in the Yomiuri newspaper that the company is planning to start selling the new TVs by the end of the year.
Sony and Panasonic already started selling 3D TVs in the market that require glasses. However, there are already TV screens in the market that don’t require wearing 3D glasses, but most of those special TVs are intended for store displays only. And viewer need to stand in a specific place spots to experience “shocking” 3D effect, and the image quality is quite lower than that of screens using glasses.
3D movies and television shows have enjoyed a great deal of popularity in recent years.
3D was first seen in the late 1950’s, and since then most electronic companies are trying to figure out how to bring the 3D TV into the living room of every houses. There are already gadgets such as cameras and game console that has a capacity to deliver 3D images without special glasses.
“Many people don’t like to wear glasses to watch TV for a long time, especially people who must wear 3-D glasses over regular glasses,” Sugahara said.
