How does 3D without glasses work and will it be any good??

I saw it mentioned on the Gadget Show and it said it was probably coming this year?

 

I can't see how glassless 3D would work and will it be a poor version of the current 3d TV with glasses or worth waiting for?

Details here.

I would wait for at least 3-4 years before considering glassless 3D TV. The techonology is too complicated to perfect in the initial few years.

agree with bigboss, reckon you're talking 4/5 years before glasses free 3d is even approaching the price of the highest prices active shutter sets like the panasonic vt series.. i think your going to see it come with the introduction of 4k screens.. cause you need the 4k resolution or higher to get full hd 3d without glasses

The head tracking 3d system mentioned that only allows one person to view in 3d does give the benefit of allowing two people to watch two different (2d) tv programs on one tv set.  Saw a very impressive demo from Microsoft on that one.

Here are also 2 good explanations:

1. wiki

2. 3d w/o glasses: future of 3d technology?

To be short: it's a technology, which separates a crossover 3d picture not at the level of your eyes but at the level of display.

Iv'e watched a few football matches in 3D and just watched the new underworld in 3D,must admit my head is adjusting well  to the glasses,even the Mrs enjoys it!!

It would be a great thing to watch glasses free,but having had my GT30 for 6mths i'm glad it wont be available for a good few years yet... :wall:

Glad you'd enjoyed watching :rockout: Underworld 4: Awakening is one of the best of 3D movies i've seen thus so far on Blu-Ray.

This technology is still under initial stage and as bigboss mentioned it would nearly take 3-4 years for this tech to get implemented in the TVs.  Currently battery free glasses are the most advanced techs for the 3D glasses.  I have an LG 3D TV that has passive glass and I am very much happy with it.

Except that Toshiba have already released a TV with glasses free technology - link and  link.

If they can pull it off, it will be insane. I doubt it will be coming out within five years. Is it Panasonic that is in the procedure? Until then, LG is the way to go, OLED Tv will be the next revolution, it has already been announced.

1) 3D without glasses is already out, by Toshiba. The technology will take a few years to perfect.

2) OLED is not without its problems currently:
