    I'm not going to sit in front of a TV with some special glasses on.

    Somebody invent something better, please.

    It's never going to catch on mainstream like that. Cool concept poorly executed.

    Oh I just realised... HOLOGRAMS. There you go, somebody already DID invent something better.

    "something better" doesnt need to be invented, it already exists.

    I sit in front of the TV wearing my prescription glasses all the time.

    I don't think it is wearing glasses that is the problem. It is if they are heavy or make you look stupid.

    The 3D system used to project 3D movies in cinemas relies on polarized glasses. The ones you get from the cinema are not great, but that is mainly because they are cheap and disposable. If you where going to use that system to watch 3D TV at home, you could easily have much nicer ones made that would look and feel similar to normal sunglasses, and they could have prescription lenses in them if necessary.

    But what if a load of friends come round to, for example, watch a football match? Are we expected to carry spares?

    Well there would obviously be a feature to turn it on and off. Wearing glasses to watch TV for as much as we watch it would be absurd. Also, they'd have to get all the programs to be optomized for the 3d glasses and I can only see specials or movies in the near future who would feature this.

    A few, yes, but if the technology is common then your friends will have a pair of suitable glasses for their TV at home, so all they have to do is remember to bring them.
