Toshiba working on 3D TV that doesn't require glasses

This year at CES, the big show for many television manufacturers was 3D technology, which many believed to be the next big thing since HDTV, while others disagreed and said the technology was only a gimmick.

However, that didn't stop Nintendo from presenting the Nintendo 3DS, which allows the consumer to play games in 3D, without the need for special glasses.

While early 3DTV sales were hugely disappointing, Toshiba announced on Tuesday that they are working on 3D sets that won't require you to wear glasses. Toshiba said they will unveil three models of the 3D television before Christmas, Yahoo and TheStar reported. The 3-D TV's will sell for around $7,000 each

Many consumers complained that the glasses either ruined the experience or were irritating to wear while watching a movie, television show or event.

The sets will likely be demonstrated at CES2011 in January, which will likely be the focal point of the trade show again this year. Expect to see more electronics and handheld devices utilizing 3D technology - without the need for glasses - in the near future.
