Real3D glasses are useless outside 3D cinemas.
Those 3D glasses use polarisation to separate left and right. The only way to use them in a home theatre system is if you have two projectors, polarize their outputs differently, somehow split the video signal left/right info, perfectly align both images on screen, etc. Quite an investment in time and money for very little material currently available.
3D @ home is either with:
- red/cyan glasses (color filter separation, aka anaglyph), or
- LCD shutter glasses but this requires a computer with 3D material or running special software to fake 3D from a DVD (DVD and blu-ray players can't do this) but most TVs don't support this (the only ones I know of that do support this are some Mitsubishi and Samsung models)
Panasonic is working towards 3D for blu-ray, but this will be a new standard that will require new players, and marketers are suggesting 2010 at the earliest. Read here
