Sharp Joins 3D TV Bandwagon

sharpquattron300.jpg

Not content to merely add yellow to its HDTVs, Sharp now plans to launch 3D TVs this summer with the same technology. The company believes that its high response speed will help eliminate "crosstalk," the ghostly double images that can occur in 3D. Sharp also plans to make displays for cellies and other mobile devices that will not need glasses, but you will still need them for the TVs.

Samsung High End 3D Glasses

3D is obviously on its way and it didn't take Samsung long to come up with a pair of glasses to go with them. Unfortunately, these come at a huge $150.00 price and are compatible only with Samsung electronics. We know that as exciting as the new technology will be when it comes out, purchasing a $3,000.00 3D TV, Blu-ray player and glasses will cost a good chunk of change.

Sony Thinking 3D For Consumers

sony3d.jpg

Sony is going all out in 3D. They have already come up with the HFC Comfort-3D and the HDC-F950 cameras, and now the company's Masashi Imamura, President of Personal Imaging and Sound, said that that they are already working on one for consumers. No specific date or price was mentioned but we expect them to be like most new technology, pricey until there is plenty of competition and a couple of generations.
