CES 2011: XpanD Debuts Customizable 3D Glasses


CES 2011

Las Vegas - XpanD today at International CES introduced customizable universal active-shutter 3D glasses that are customizable to a user's viewing environment through a smartphone app.

The company said its new Youniversal series of 3D electronic eyewear offers personal optimization to account for a user's unique eyesight, facial structure, viewing position and room dynamics.

"The Youniversal glasses put the YOU in universal," said XpanD CEO Maria Costeira. "Recognizing that no two people view 3D in the exact same way, we have designed our electronic eyewear to comprehensively address the unique differences in people's vision, the viewing environment and selection of 3D devices. In doing so, we're creating the ultimate 3D experience."

Available in black, gray and red in male and female sizes, the new glasses will begin shipping in April and will communicate with IR, Bluetooth, RF and DLP-Link platforms. The smartphone app will initially be available for Apple and Android devices.

The glasses were designed by the Gigodesign studio and Costeiro called them "the lightest and fastest active shutter glasses on the market. Every parameter from viewer optimization, interoperability, unit weight and comfort was evaluated and XpanD made groundbreaking improvements in every category," she said.

Retail pricing will be announced at a later date.
