DIY 3D Glasses

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I don't know if this is the correct place for this post but here it is:

I have access to lens cutting machines as we have a family optical shop and I was wondering if there is a way of creating my own 3D Glasses.

I know that the 3D glasses use polarized lenses, one vertical and one horizontal but I don't know what is the purpose of the light inside the glasses .

So I could find a set of polarised lenses and try this but I would like some opinions whether this can work or there is something else that I can't think of and thats where I need your opinions!

Most major 3D TVs that are on the market use a technology called active-shutter for rendering their 3D images. In one instant in time, the TV will show you only what your right eye should see and the glasses cover your left eye. A split second later, the TV shows what your left eye should see and the glasses cover your right eye. They accomplish this by putting a LCD panel on each lens and blacking it out until the TV is displaying the frame for that eye.

You could make some sweet polarized 3D glasses for the movie theater, but you'd have to hope you got the direction right (or else you might be wearing your glasses upside-down during the movie!).

Yeah i think getting it right would be very tricky, I guess the glasses have to communicate with the tv to get the timings right? Would be awesome if you could pull it off but I'm guessing at the price of 3D glasses is because they are fairly complicated! (may not be, they could just be a rip off lol)
