XpanD, Mitsubishi, and others already have glasses out.
...Last August, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and glasses maker Xpand 3D announced
that they were working together to develop a standard for 3D glasses. It’s called Full HD 3D Glasses
...The glasses also work with some 3D PCs and with 3D movies shown in theaters that use active 3D...These new glasses aren’t quite universal, because some TV makers are using infrared to sync the spectacles with the 3D picture, and others use Bluetooth
. Makers of 3D glasses can choose to support infrared, Bluetooth or both; the compatible technologies will be indicated on packaging.
Besides cofounders Panasonic, Samsung and Sony, other major TV makers have expressed support for the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative, including Toshiba, Philips and Sharp. So the chances seem good that these standard glasses will, in fact, become standard...Full HD 3D glasses are beginning to hit store shelves. The first HDTVs that they’ll work with are supposed to show up in March
That last part is funny, because last year's Mitsubishi's already meet the standard.
