Sony unveils 3D Vaio laptop At this week's IFA 2010 tech fair, Sony has unveiled a 3D Vaio notebook, one that includes a button that, when pressed, will convert 2D images to 3D.
While the premise is intriguing, there is, of course, a catch. Users will need to wear active shutter glasses to view the 3D.

The glasses, besides being an annoyance, are easy to lose and expensive to replace, making the proposition less interesting.

Sony CEO Howard Stringer says the notebook will be available next Spring, but no word on cost.

The display is full 1080p HD, and can handle 240 fps. Additionally, Sony's "black frame insertion" tech is used, which "which inserts a black frame between normal video frames to improve pixel response and improve black levels," says PCW.
