3D TV from Hyundai in Japan
Hyundai Korean car maker is releasing only 3D TV in Japan. The 46-inch LCD costs about $4,000 and comes with two 3D glasses, which you (obviously) have to wear. The programming is limited too—only a couple of cable channels provide 3D content, mostly nature shots from Hokkaido, animals in a zoo, and bike racing. It uses stereoscopic TriDef technology, which produces dual images, one for each seeing eye. Samsung sells something similar in the US, but there’s no 3D-specific broadcasting in the US.
