Gunnar Releases RealD Certified 3D Glasses

Posted Wed Dec 15, 2010 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

The specialty optics company is the latest to offer an alternative to theater glasses.

It seems silly to us, but there's either an incredible amount of demand for designer 3D glasses or companies think there will be soon. And no, we're not talking about glasses that use the active shutter tech that's used in homes, we're talking about designer glasses for use in a darkened theater for two hours.

If the Gunnar name looks familiar, you may have their designer sunglasses, or the special eSport glasses made for gamers. They're a bit of a specialty company.

Like the rest of the designer glasses crowd, Gunnar guarantees optically correct glasses, and professional grade lenses. "It’s exciting to see the tools used by professionals who work with 3D content on a daily basis finally making it to the marketplace and put in the hands of visually discerning consumers as well," says Gunnar co-founder Joe Croft.

You can pick up Gunnar's new 3D glasses now, for prices ranging from $99 to $149 at Amazon, and Fry's.
