Toshiba Unveils Glasses-Free 3D TV

Don’t get too excited: Toshiba unveiled the world’s first glasses-free 3D television on Monday, but it doesn’t sound too pleasant. Viewers will have to sit within an optimal viewing zone in order for the 3D to take effect; the televisions are pretty small at 12 inches and 20 inches; and viewers are suggested to sit mere feet away from the screen. The technology is similar to that of the Nintendo 3DS. They’ll go on sale in Japan in December; there was no announcement about overseas availability.
