Back in June, Monster Cable was making waves by announcing its Monster Vision Max 3D glasses via a Twitter pic. A press release did follow. Now the company is filling in a few more gaps, announcing a release date and updated pricing.
According to Big Picture Big Sound, Monster has the Monster Vision Max 3D glasses on display at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show. The company says that those glasses will start selling through Amazon.com on January 30, 2011.
The Monster Vision Max 3D glasses will sell in a kit with one pair of glasses and the necessary transmitter for $229.95 (MSRP). If you need an extra pair, you can buy just the glasses for $159.95.
It looks like Monster has dropped those prices since the original announcement. In case you are keeping score, the kit appears to be $20 less, with the glasses coming in at $10 under the original estimate.
Monster describes its Vision Max 3D glasses as an “RF Shutter system” that works with all brands of 3D TVs. Based on Bit Cauldron’s HeartBeat technology, the system uses active sync technology to send signals to a transmitter, which decodes them to a sensor in the glasses. According to Monster, this setup blinks faster than the eye can see, resulting in lifelike 3D entertainment.
Monster says that the Monster Vision Max 3D glasses are modeled to fit all head sizes, and can even be worn over prescription glasses.
