Toshiba to Sell World's First Large Glasses-Free 3D TV to Boost Demand - Bloomberg

From the article:

"Toshiba Corp. plans to sell the world’s first large-sized 3-D televisions that don’t require viewers to wear special glasses, an advance which may aid the popularity of a technology that’s been slow to catch on.

The Tokyo-based electronics-maker will introduce in the year starting in April 3-D TVs 40-inches and larger that do away with the need for the glasses, Vice President Atsushi Murasawa said at a briefing today at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The sets will be introduced in Japan, North America and Europe, he said." ...

They've been trying to get this off the ground for ages, and a drawback with these TVs is still the fact that to get the full 3D effect you need to be sitting at a pretty narrow and specific distance and angle from the TV to get the benefit.

Something I guess they will improve with time, but meanwhile who wants to spend the horrendous amount to get one of the first ones?
