Along with Sony’s upcoming 3D-capable LCD sets, the company has announced standalone shutter glasses and an infrared emitter to drive them. Are you sitting down? For a family of four, the 3D upgrade would cost $587. Yep, that’s a lot of scratch. I hope you at least get to see your money fly out of your wallet in glorious 3D.
Sony’s TDG-BR100 and TDG-BR50 active shutter glasses will cost about $133 each this June in Japan. The emitter will cost about $55 after conversion.
However, if you buy Sony’s LX900 TV, starting at $3900, you get the emitter and two sets of glasses “free.”
