It's no secret that the whole 3D-thing didn't revolutionise the movie going experience — the second time around. But was it really because of expensive ticket prices, crappy 3D conversions, or more convenient home streaming options? Maybe. Or maybe it was because theatre-goers didn't have their choice of Avengers-themed 3D glasses.


You know that sad feeling you get when a headache's coming on while watching a 3D movie and you remember that you can't actually take the glasses off for a few seconds of relief because the ghosted 2D image is even harder to watch? That could be a thing of the past as researchers from the University of California Santa Cruz have developed a new kind of 3D display that doesn't appear ghosted when you're not wearing those special glasses.


Today's 3D TVs use any one of three active shutter technologies — IR, RF or Bluetooth. If you own more than one 3D set — or you're always short a pair of glasses at a friend's house — you'd appreciate a pair that can synchronise with multiple systems. That's better than keeping track of several pairs of backup glasses. Isn't it?
