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?


Those lucky enough to attend the Sydney premiere of the final Harry Potter movie (like the girls at PopSugar) were treated to an unexpected little trinket: these fun 3D Harry Potter glasses. And this got me thinking…what movies with iconic glasses would be fun to re-watch again in the cinema? Robocop? Star Trek? Top Gun?
