It's a 52 incher too - perfect for the living room.
Fans and haters alike can agree that the glasses are the single most annoying thing about 3D. Buying special equipment just to watch a movie with can be a pain in the wallet, wearing those glasses can be a pain in the head and dealing with batteries and a compatibility issues is a pain in the ass.
Nissho has launched a new set that they hope will catch on fast. It's a 52 inch TV that doesn't require the use of glasses at all. It uses lenticular technology to provide a 3D image to the viewer, though there's no mention of exactly what seating angles will work.
The specs aren't to impressive - it only has a 2,000:1 contrast ratio and a 60Hz refresh rate - but the glasses-free part should be enough to get people excited.
Of course, this kind of tech doesn't come cheap. You'll need to shell out just over $20,000 to pick up the new set.
