Microvision has developed a line of curved-lens circular polarized glasses for theater and home 3D viewing. Their patented curved lens design greatly reduces the amount of reflected images from objects behind the wearer. Reflected light from doors opening or people walking behind the wearer can be very distracting.
The curved lens also makes them look cool (check them out here).
Microvision is currently showing seven styles with five frame colors for each style, including custom frames in ‘Avatar blue’ given out at the movie’s premiere events. They will soon offer clip-on polarized glasses as well as glasses designed specifically to go over corrective glasses. In three months they plan to release circular polarized lenses that can be processed for prescription optics.
The glasses are manufactured in Maritius in a plant that complies with the studios’ labor and environment guidelines. The MSRP is $40.
