LAS VEGAS — Xpand’s new universal 3D glasses not only adjust to suit the 3DTV you want to use them with: they also adjust to suit you. Dubbed “Youniversal”, the specs come in a range of sizes and can be further tweaked to change a numer of parameters.
Like other Xpand 3D glasses, these can be set to sync with any television that uses active-shutter 3D, and work with Bluetooth, RF, infra-red and DLP-link connections. Unlike other specs, these come with a companion smartphone app to tailor them for your eyes only.
Choose black, gray or red frames, and from two sizes, and fire up the app. You can adjust the glasses according to ambient brightness, whether you’re wearing prescription lenses already, and also the amount of the 3D effect – from in-your-face Jaws 3D-style to subtle Pixar’s Day & Night-style.
I like the look of these specs. They’re actually very similar to my everyday glasses. I do wonder how long it will take to get the ultimate in personalized 3D specs: prescription lenses.
Available April, price yet to be announced (but probably more than the regular $130 Xpand glasses).
