Sony and Panasonic are expected to introduce 3-D televisions next year. The TV’s are expected to cost about the same as HDTV’s currently on the market. But some are taking a wait and see approach since it will be the public who decides how well the new TV’s will be accepted.
According to a recent article it also stated that:
There are concerns that 3-D broadcasts, which require twice the data, will gobble up an unworkable amount of television bandwidth. And some worry that 3-D glasses and graphics won’t make a smooth transition to American living rooms.
Aside from the kooky glasses, people who want to watch television that jumps off the screen will need something to watch. The process of making live television work in 3-D probably would involve a major conversion of broadcast equipment.
These are some of the hurdles that 3-D will have to bridge. I’m not sure that the TV stations are going to jump on the bandwagon, taking into consideration they have just switched over to HDTV. Next, having to wear 3-D glasses give some folks a headache. Plus there is the fact that some of us have a personal preference in how we want to watch TV and I personally don’t see 3-D in my future.
The 3-D revolution will be replaced eventually by holograms. LOL
I was roaming around and saw a site which recommended a company called Zenni Optical to order your prescription glasses from. I took a look at the website and they offer a wide variety of different frames as well as glasses starting as low as $8.00. I am sure that most of us would opt for a more expensive pair, but it is good to know that the option is available for those on a tight budget.
On the site they state that:
Using the latest modern materials, manufacturing and marketing systems we bring our product direct from our factories to you. No middlemen, no retail overhead, and practically no advertising budget,(we leave it to you, our satisfied customers to spread the word), we do not pay for or sell expensive, or even inexpensive, brand names, but only our own manufactured brand ZENNI.
Eyeglasses are definitely a personal fashion and style item, and to that end we strive to provide a fashionable and stylish product. More importantly, we feel prescription eyeglasses are a health item necessity for most wearers, and to that end we take considerable pride in being able to bring to all a very high quality product of great durability, safety and comfort at truly reasonable and affordable prices.
I took a look at some of the frame offerings and they look good. Plus the prices are reasonable. But my question is this. Have you ordered glasses online before?
