Toshiba promises glasses-free 3D TV on “sale” in U.S. any day now

While Toshiba already has a glasses-free 3D TV on the markets in Germany and Japan, American eyeballs are still forced to peep their three-dimensional content through shades. That, however, is about to change very soon. A Toshiba representative tells CNET that a model similar to the 55-inch sets already on the foreign markets will be available in the U.S. in the first quarter of this year. There are no other details available on the size or specs of the set, but the company’s glasses-free 3D technology – said to be improved over last year’s – is getting some floor time at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The Japanese and European models utilize 4K (3,840×2,160-pixel) resolution screens, but the 3D mode is limited to an effective resolution of 1,280×720 pixels. Oh, and the quotes around the word “sale” up top? Well, the TVs are going for more than $10,000 in their respective countries right now, so, yeah–early adopters, start saving!
