LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – The worst thing about 3D technology -- other than "Conan the Barbarian" -- is the glasses.
They're clunky, they're uncomfortable, they're (sometimes) unsanitary and people hate 'em. Kind of like "Conan."
But Toshiba has solved that -- for TV viewing, at least.
The company has unveiled a 55-inch, glasses-free 3D television. A camera underneath the screen scans to see how many people -- up to nine -- are watching, and sends out the image.
It hasn't gotten the best of reviews, but it's the beginning of something cool. Who knows, maybe those lame 3-D movies will get a boost, and we'll be able to enjoy Friday The 13th the way the good Lord intended.
