Thanks, Invisblenetman. I do think that the industry is underestimating the 3-D glasses issue. I am glad that Invisblenetman shared his real-life experience. Ask your own kids. They can tell you how uncomfortable they are. Meanwhile, you raise an interesting point here. You suggest us to own a pair of our own 3-D glasses that we use at home -- which we can bring to theaters. Hmmm. That means, whatever 3-D technology our new TV set deploys in the future needs to be compatible with 3-D format used in theaters. No wonder many in the 3-D technology business see the CES this week in Vegas as a do-or-die event.

I have never responded to an article in EETimes but have to tell you how spot on you are. I took my 7 year old to see Up! and that was her biggest complaint. She actually took the glasses off for parts of the movie as the glasses ‚??bugged‚?Ě her so much‚?¶ She really didn't even want to see the movie in 3D as the glasses bugged her (she knows how uncomfortable they are from all the 3d experiences we've had in Disneyland/world). I foresee a new business opportunity for someone ‚?? comfortable 3d glasses you own and bring to movies yourself, or once they figure out TV, for your home use‚?¶

3D film goes over more than half century, but still be quite young. Different 3D glasses response to different 3D film system. color(r/b)system is the cheapest but switcher is the most expensive.

There is a large population, including me, that wear prescription glasses. For us, clip on 3D glasses are required, similar to clip on sunglasses, rather than wearing one pair of glasses over another. Also. a wide viewing angle, say +/- 60 degrees is needed so that families, or guests, can watch 3D TV together when sitting at different places in the room.
