Sears to Sell 3D Glasses9 Nov, 2010 By: Erik Gruenwedel
National retailer Sears, Roebuck and Co. will soon be offering 3D glasses for home and theatrical use.
Los Angeles-based XpanD said it is rolling out the active-shutter Universal 3D glasses at Sears (and Sears.com), and claims they are compatible with any 3D-ready, infrared-emitting display.
“This opportunity gives Sears a new product that satisfies a growing customer need as interest in 3DTV will be stronger than ever this holiday season and into 2011,” said Maria Costeira, CEO of XpanD.
The Universal 3D glasses were available in October for pre-order on Amazon for $129.
Separately, Oakley Inc. officially bowed its previously announced 3D Gascan glasses ($120), which can be worn to view any theatrical movie projected by RealD technology.
