When it comes to stereoscopic 3D entertainment, there are the mainstay names such as Sony, Samsung and of course, LG Electronics. I do wonder just how many people purchase 3D movies to watch at home, especially when the 3D TVs these days do not exactly have the kind of viewing angles that you will find at the cinema. Well, at least time has shown that improvements are slowly but surely being incorporated, and LG Electronics has taken the step to introduce their latest collection of 3D glasses, and fashionistas will also be pleased to hear that there is a pair that was specially designed by renowned eyewear designer Alain Mikli.
This pair of designer 3D glasses will roll out sometime in Q1 next year, and the new 3D glasses are known as the F310, alongside a clip-on version known as the F320, and the Alain Mikli F360. These are all far lighter and more comfortable to wear than what you can find on the market, while there are also upgraded design features including curved lenses and a clean frame structure which have made their transition to the 3D glasses world, making you look stylish while you enjoy the latest popcorn-loving blockbuster flick.
According to Havis Kwon, President and CEO of the LG Home Entertainment Company, “Compared to active shutter glasses, LG’s 3D glasses are far more comfortable to wear and much more affordable, making it possible for large groups and entire families to watch 3D programs and movies together. LG is addressing two of the biggest barriers to 3D acceptance head-on and we’re confident consumers will react favorably to our strategy in the coming year.”
You can tell the F310 right away thanks to its distinctive design which merges soft lines within a slim frame. The lenses are also specially curved in order to accommodate the shape of the wearer’s face. It is 80% the weight of its predecessor, tipping the scales at a mere 13.5 grams. As for the the clip-on F320, this puppy is unique to 3D TVs based on Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology. Last but not least would be Alain Mikli’s F360’s half-rim frame design, which is sporty in design, and sports lenses that have been curved to cover most of the wearer’s face.
