Oakley's $150 passive 3D glasses let you watch 'Tron' in style. Yes, $150.
There are a lot of people excited about the new 'Tron' movie, and why shouldn't there be? The first was a classic, and the update is sorely needed to bring the franchise back to relevance. That and it looks cool.
But what's cooler than watching a cool movie? Wearing a cool pair of glasses while you do it. Lucky for you the folks at Oakley have introduced new Tron themed 3D glasses. Oakley boasts that the new Tron 3D glasses are "the first optically correct 3D eyewear on Earth," and completely eliminate ghosting and crosstalk.
That all sounds good, but how much will these glasses cost? Surely not much more than the disposable passive glasses you get with your ticket, right? Wrong. You'll have to shell out $150 for a pair of glasses you'll only be able to use at the theater.
Needless to say, we're not impressed.
