CES 2011: Samsung and RealD creating new 3D display Samsung and RealD have announced they are developing a new 3D display that will greatly increase the sharpness of 3D images.
The tech will work with 3D stereoscopic glasses, the same ones that are readily available in movie theaters and are very cheap to make.

This is notable, as current 3D HDTV glasses are expensive, with most selling for over $100 a piece.

Says RealD president of consumer electronics Bob Mayson (via LAT):

RealD is focused on delivering a premium 3-D experience on screens of all sizes, from motion picture theaters to consumer electronics, and we look forward to working with Samsung LCD to develop this new 3-D display technology.

All current 3D TVs "cut resolution in half or diminish brightness," said Samsung. The new display will not.

One of the reasons why I don't feel sorry for anyone who already jumped on the 3D bandwagon, if you have a litle patience, something better is always around the corner.
