3D movies are super cool, but if you wear glasses you know that the experience gets a little less awesome when you have to wear your 3D glasses over your normal glasses. And that’s if you can manage it; some 3D glasses aren’t large enough. Luckily, our inconveniences will soon be at an end; TriplePoint client Gunnar Optiks announced this week that prescription 3D glasses will soon be a reality.
The announcement follows the launch of Gunnar Optiks’ RealD 3D glasses: a solution for hawk-eyed or contact-wearing patrons who want to own their own suave 3D glasses rather than using the ones at the movie theatre. The new glasses have two designs, Phenom and Anime, and cost $99 a piece. The glasses are only for movies; they do not work with the burgeoning 3D TV technology. The RealD non-prescription glasses are available now; the 3D prescription glasses are slated to be available by the end of the year.
