Peelable Polarized Lenses Turn Any Specs Into 3D Glasses

3D movies particularly suck for people who already wear glasses since it means they have to wear two pairs while at the theater. That, or spend the next two hours squinting at the action on screen.

So designers Lucy Jung and Daejin Ahn came up with a rather ingenius solution. Their Stix concept is a simple set of polarizing filter stickers that can be placed directly on the lenses of a prescription pair of glasses, effectively turning them into 3D specs.

And if the decals peel off as easily and cleanly as they go on, this could be a fantastic way to convince a good number of the population that going to a 3D movie doesn't actually suck. Another radical idea that we're just going to throw out there—Hollywood could make better 3D movies. [Yanko Design]

"Another radical idea that we're just going to throw out there—Hollywood could make better 3D movies." I don't think Hollywood needs to make better 3D movies, they just need better theaters and glasses. Polarized 3D movies in theaters are garbage compared to the quality of a 3D Bluray using stereoscopic glasses. I have watched Disciple Me, Hugo, and Kung Fu Panda 2 in 3D bluray, with stereoscopic glasses (nvidia 3d vision glasses, panasonic glasses, xpand glasses), on a 60 panasonic viera and a 27 inch 3d vision monitor. That experience shits on 3D in the movie theaters. Yes the technology I mentioned is more expensive than the occasional rip-off price of a 3d movie ticket, however it is worth it. Like many people, you could always buy a 3D Bluray , then sell the regular bluray and DVD that comes with it and make most of your money back.

Please refrain from the onslaught of "I hate 3D....." comments that 3D articles generally produce.
