I pity the fool who thinks glasses-free 3D will be here soon. Toshiba just announced the world’s first 3D monocle for people who hate those pesky 3D glasses. The Toshiba Spectacle promises to deliver a one-eyed 3D experience so real, you’d think you were using both eyes!
The technology behind the world’s first 3D monocle is amazingly simple. Two triangular polarizing lenses were melded in parallel and encased in black-plated tungsten carbide for a lightweight and durable construction. For comfort, the casing was molded into the shape of an average human eye hole, and draped in bonded leather. Available accessories for the Toshiba Spectacle include the “Spec-Pouch” carrying case and an optional chain … just in case you want to look a bit more like Mr. Peanut.
Be sure to check out the detailed specifications and pricing on the Toshiba website.
Online and retail availability might be a problem after today.
