    Toshiba Has Glasses-Free 3D TV by Holidays

    According to a Japanese report, Toshiba is readying a 3D HDTV for release sometime in the next year, maybe even by Christmas, that would not require glasses to view. The technology, called autostereoscopic 3D, is different than that of the Nintendo 3DS and should be better for larger-scale video. 3D HDTVs out already are impressive, but having more than a couple friends over to watch a movie quickly becomes an expensive act after buying a bunch of 3D stereoscopic glasses.

    If the image quality is good enough, these glasses-free sets could help 3D become a product line that could finally be here to stay.
