Even if you don’t want to do the 3D thing at home, universal 3D glasses might be a wise investment.
When your buddy with the big-screen 3D TV says he doesn’t have enough glasses to go around, you can tell him you’ve got a pair of XpanD X103 universal 3D glasses—and that you are partial to cheese flavoring on your popcorn.
The X103s stand out not just because they come in a variety of colors, but also because these active-shutter glasses are designed to work with any with 3D-ready LCD laptop and desktop monitors, LCD, DLP and plasma televisions.
You might want to check the website first for compatibility. No one wants to show up with a personal set of 3D glasses that don’t work!
However, if you’ve got a match, you should be able to ride the wave of 3D using the couches of anyone with a 3D TV—all for around $145.
Aside from the option of a favorite color for your face, Xpand stands apart from others by using something called “the “pi-cell.” This fast-switching liquid crystal cell acts as a shutter, to alternately block each eye. It sounds sort of blinding, but actually boasts super-sharp, flicker-free 3D images.
