The incompatibility of glasses from 3DTV manufacturers is another sign that 3DTV is just a passing phase. And I find it to be an annoying one personally. Now there’s word from Samsung that they should work with other TVs if worn upside down. Which really stinks because you already look ridiculous enough.
The trick was revealed during a demonstration of Samsung’s 3DTVs in the UK, with R&D chief Simon Lee using a Panasonic 3DTV to explain the compatibility. The trick will only work on sets that use Active Shutter glasses, and so far it has only been tested with Samsung and Panasonic’s sets.
