Dolby releases kid-friendly 3D glasses


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: If 3D technology is here to stay – and we are praying it isn’t – then changes are going to have to be made regarding the brightness of the images and the uncomfortableness of the required glasses.

One of those issues might be addressed in the near future.

Dolby Laboratories “has launched a line of kid-size glasses for Dolby 3D-equipped theaters,” THR reports. The glasses are reusable, and would be purchased and maintained by theater owners for the price of $12 or lower. The trade adds that they are “passive, meaning that they don’t require batteries or charging.”

Well, duh. The problem is, are they thick and heavy? Because I brought a three-year-old to three 3D movies this year, and he ends up watching the blurry picture because he can’t stand wearing the heavy glasses for a 90-minute movie. It’s a serious problem. I wonder if the Dolby glasses addresses it.

If you happen to see these new Dolby glasses for kids in theaters, please let us know if they work, and how.
