(NEW YORK) -- A group of electronics giants are joining forces to finally standardize 3-D glasses for home use.
With high-margin 3-D TVs expected to become popular in the U.S. over the next several years, Sony Corp. and Samsung Electronics Co. announced Monday they were signing on with Panasonic Corp, among other firms, to develop universal 3-D glasses.
The new standards, which should be available by the early fall, will cover various infrared and radio-frequency communications, as well as Bluetooth technology.
Far different from the glasses that people wear in movie theaters, the 3-D glasses that connect with high-definition televisions feature batteries that allow the specs to flash different images to each eye, thus creating the 3-D effect.
