Viewsonic Debuts $99 3D Glasses

Designed for use with 3D ready DLP Projectors.

It’s nice to see a company making somewhat reasonably priced 3D glasses. When glasses you’re going to use for two hours at a time cost more than prescription eyeglasses, it’s a problem. Viewsonic has been at the whole active shutter thing for a while now, and the newest glasses to come out of the company are fairly reasonable.

Of course, they’re only compatible with Viewsonic’s products, and even then, only with the DLP Link projectors the company has put out in recent months. Unlike the 3D TVs being sold by most manufacturers, Viewsonic isn’t all about fun.

As Viewsonic’s Erik Willey puts it, “We are excited to help open new worlds of viewing possibilities and put 3D within reach for a wider sector of the population – whether for work, entertainment or learning.” That’s right, Viewsonic is targeting work and education.

On the downside, it doesn’t look like 3D Active glasses are getting too much cheaper any time soon. But on the upside, your next boring business meeting may be boring in three dimensions.
