the original did not have folding as we do not want the theater goers to steal them. the new frame will be developmental and i will post what i can as it happens.
A New designed Pair of glasses would be a hugely welcomed by myself and a Great step forward mate
While I can use the ones you sell now, there Just a very bad fit with my rimless prescription glasses. Removing the nose piece helped get them closer to my face which helped abit with the problem of each eye Being able to see the other eyes lens, only downside was the glasses NOW sit further down my nose/face so resulting in my own glasses not covering the whole Length of the Omega Glasses lens area and I can now see the lens lower rim/edge of my own rimless prescription glasses lens.
Getting thumb prints on the lens after a relative was checking out the 3d and mistakenly stood up before removing the glasses, which made the glasses fall off her face, her instant reaction was to grab the glasses, hence the thumb prints. Tried cleaning them with a Screen cloth and even an alcohol wipe (not sure if that was right thing to do or not?) resulted in a very slight foggy look to them when wearing them.
I have got 3 pair, so just means one family member will have to have the slight foggy ones, I just won't tell them
Am Still Very greatful ( As much as the above Statement may not sound like it ) for you sharing your expertise AND bringing your Omega kit to the masses mate and it can only get bigger and better when you come out with the "MARK 2" Omega 3d Design kit.
Like you say, the Glasses were made for Cinema goers and not us Fussy home cinema geeks.
I've ONLY just FINALLY got my projector shelf fitted to sit both w1070 onto, A temp cheap 113" screen (not bolted upto wall yet)
Once Christmas and New year are out of the way (BAH HUMBUG!!) My Bedroom, come lightly and wrongly coloured Cinema room WILL get finished.
Fingerscrossed your new and better filter and glasses kit will be same or close to the price of the now "MARK 1" KIT?
