Gunnar Optiks 3D Glasses Keep You Looking Fresh In the Year of 3D

We've liked Gunnar's strain-reducing specs in the past, so we expect that these not-movie-theater-ugly new 3D glasses will be just the ticket for what is looking to be a 3D-heavy 2010.

Gunnar asks, and rightfully so, why the 3D glasses should be the weakest link in a new, multi-million dollar 3D industry. Their solution is this stylish pair of specs that will be available in several popular 3D formats, ostensibly including versions for polarized and shutter 3D.

Joe Croft, co-founder of Gunnar explains: "While typical 3D eyewear is stamped from a flat sheet of plastic, GUNNAR lenses are shaped, formed and cut to provide distortion free optics." High quality, comfortable, and, in this case, cool* 3D glasses will be an essential component of a successful transition to viable, enjoyable 3D in the home.

The glasses will be available from $90 in Q2, with perscription lenses arriving in months thereafter. [Engadget]

When I saw Avatar in 2D, the couple next to us both had their own RealD glasses on - through the entire movie. I guess they found a way to cheat the system.

I saw it in 2D because I tend to get headaches/migraines from 3D movies, but I'm sure they are from lens quality/optical clairity. These are the same types of headaches I used to get from cheapo sunglasses. I look forward to 3D glasses with good quality lenses.
