Toshiba Could Have Glasses-Free 3D Ready This Year

Rumors from Japan say a 21 inch model may hit by this holiday season!

The whole 3D thing is exciting, but it's clearly an imperfect technology. The need for expensive glasses is a big problem, and having to wear an accessory – even if it were a cheap one – in order to watch movies is just annoying. That's why companies are rushing to capture the glasses-free market.

Progress is on the way with the Nintendo 3DS and a rumored cell phone, but Toshiba's looking to go a little bigger. According to rumors from a few different Japanese media outlets, Toshiba has a 21 inch glasses-free display in the works.

Pricing is expected to somewhere in the thousands. As you might expect, a spokeswoman from Toshiba gave the usual response of "We are not in a position to make any announcement," but rest assured, HDD is on the case!!!
