New York – Marchon3D today unveiled
Ultraclips, clip-on passive 3D glasses for prescription eyeglass wearers.
The Ultraclips, an expansion of the
company’s M3D collection, use micro-magnets soldered directly onto the frame to
hold the clip flush to the polarized 3D lenses. The lenses are also
photochromic so they function as sunglasses. The photochromic lens transitions
to a sunglass in 30 seconds or less when exposed to sunlight.
“The Marchon3D Ultraclips are
extremely versatile,” said Jeff Stern, Marchon’s VP/brand executive. “In
addition to being photocromic, they work with all passive 3D technology. You
can go from using your Marchon3D Ultraclips outside as your everyday
sunglasses, to the 3D movie theater, to your 3D gaming consol or television set
without ever changing the clips.The Ultraclips are so light and comfortable
that the wearer won’t notice any difference between the clips and his or her
Marchon3D Ultraclips will be
available through independent eyecare professionals starting this spring. The
Autoflex 3D frame package (clip and frame) will wholesale for $99 to $105.
