Booth babes and celebrity guest appearances by such luminaries as Lady Gaga aside, here is the buzz word people: Universal Glasses or even better “Glasses-Free” 3D HDTV’s. So with these recent changes, is 3D HDTV the Next Big Thing?...or the next Big Niche? Toshiba's announcement in August of 2010, Nintendo and the 3D glasses free DS handheld [3] slated for a February 2011 release as far back as September 2010 were signs. Even venerable innovation titan Apple pushing out their Apple-Cart (get it?!) and joining the 3D bandwag...
