Toshiba to bring out glasses-free 3D TVs in 2010

Toshiba may release the first 3D TV that does not require viewers to wear special glasses to get the full 3D effect, according to a report from Japan's Yomiuri Shimbun on Tuesday. The set is rumored to be available in three different sizes and be out in time for the holidays. Prices have not been set, but will skew to the high end at several thousand dollars each.

The technology used for this will emit multiple rays of light from various angles so that viewers sitting at various positions around the TV can see stereoscopic images without glasses. At the same time, this will mean less eye strain for the viewers, anonymous sources for the newspaper said.

Glasses-free 3D has been possible for a significant amount of time but has rarely found its way into the market as it has usually needed very narrow "sweet spots" where the image aligns properly. Newer designs widen the sweet spots and create more of them to allow multiple viewers.

Toshiba has not commented on these rumors and is not ready to make an official statement regarding such glasses-free 3D TVs.

    Glassees Free Techs

    Philips, Sony and now Toshiba - I guess autostereoscopic display is the next big thing.

    There's also a content side technology being tested - it's called EDS, adds enhanced depth to existing videos. (Source: livestation.com/videos)
