Toshiba 3D TV Ditches Glasses but Demands Tight Seating

Toshiba on Monday announced what it claims are the world’s first LCD TVs that render three-dimensional images without the need for glasses. The new Glasses-less 3D Regza GL1 series was unveiled at the Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies in Tokyo. They use technology similar to that employed in the Nintendo 3DS hand-held game console. The larger of the two uses the Cell processor, which is also used in the PlayStation 3, to process images. They will be released in Japan by the end of the year. However, viewers must sit within a specific zone in order to get the 3D effect.
