2D Glasses – watch 3D movies without the headaches


There’s a sizeable part of the population that really don’t enjoy 3D movies in theaters because of the headache and eyestrain effect. Now there’s a solution. These very clever 2D Glasses convert Real3D movies as seen in the kinemas, into a standard 2D experience. It’s brilliant, and a very strong indication that all may not be well for the future of the 3D industry. Oh dear. Priced at $7.99 a set.


 When you watch a 3D movie, there are actually two images being projected onto the screen. That’s why the screen is blurry when you look at it without glasses. In 3D glasses one of the lenses blocks one image and the other lens blocks the other image…2D Glasses block the same image with both lenses, so each eye gets the same picture resulting in a 2D image and an elimination of eyeball strain.

  • Kinda late to the party here, I know, but this makes absolutely no sense to me!
    Why pay the extra $3.50 to see the 3D version of the movie, then put on a pair of specs (that you paid an extra 8 bucks for!) to turn it into a 2D movie… when you can GO NEXT DOOR WHERE THE 2D VERSION IS PLAYING and save all that extra money in the first place?
