Samsung's New 3D Glasses Are the World's Lightest  Print E-mail

We've seen plenty of design conscious 3D glasses come out in the last few months, but they've all been of the passive variety.  They're the kind you can use in a movie theater, but probably won't get much use from at home.   Samsung's glasses are different. 

Instead of making stylish passive-tech glasses, Samsung commissioned a company called Silhouette to create some designer 3D glasses for those with sets that require active technology.  The glasses are slick looking, if a bit odd, but comfort is the key factor here.

That's not to say there isn't anything else new in Samsung's specs.  They boast wireless charging capabilities which could add a lot to the convenience factor - something that's missing in 3D - and that the glasses will automatically detect 3D content and turn themselves on and off accordingly.
