Kraken Steampunk 3D Goggles Are Fun

Kraken Steampunk 3D Goggles

It seems that steampunk is getting into the 3DTV industry as well as in many other industries like computers, jewelry or clothing.

Will Rockwell came up with this idea of creating the Kraken steampunk 3D goggles that come with an unique design. These glasses are different than any regular pair of 3D glasses, they’re big, wrap-around goggles and the lenses that were used are from a real pair of glasses and that means that you can use the Kraken 3D goggles in theaters too.

So if you want all the attention when you enter the theater, go to Etsy and order the Kraken seampunk 3D goggles for $200.

Sony’s 3D Glasses Will Have You Break the Piggy Bank


Japanese tech giant, Sony, has announced a slick line of 3D LCD TV’s scheduled to hit retailer shelves in June, and with it, a set of really expensive series of 3D glasses.

After Sony announced the prices of its 3D peripherals, it has become clear the Japanese manufacturer plans to cash in on not just the 3D LCDs, but accessories as well. I hope you’re sitting down, cause these prices might cause faints, and even seizures.

Sony‘s TDG-BR100 and TDG-BR50 active shutter glasses, will be priced at $133 each, when they hit stores, in June. And a set of four Sony 3D glasses and infrared transmitter, to drive them, will have you fork out a staggering $587.

Finally, a Pair of Stylish 3D Glasses


Gunnar Optiks announced it will be producing a series of 3D glasses compatible with all the most popular 3D platforms on the market.

Unlike common 3D glasses, stamped from a simple piece of plastic, Gunnar glasses are finely cut and shaped to provide a distortion-free 3D experience. Gunnar digital glasses already have a very good reputation, but we’ll have to wait until Q2 of 2010 to see what the new Gunnar 3D glasses can do.

Finally, an alternative to low-quality, ugly-as-hell 3D glasses. I can’t wait.
