Abt @ CES 2012: Sony Glasses-Free 3D TV

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Looking to get a 3D TV, but don’t like having to wear clunky 3D glasses?  Sony has just the solution for you: a glasses-free 3D TV.  Jon Abt saw various models of what Sony has to offer, but he preferred the smaller screens compared to the larger ones.  Since it is newer technology, Sony may need to figure out all the bells and whistles, but glasses-free 3D TVs are a great idea.  Hopefully it will be perfected soon and viewers can immerse themselves in an amazing cinematic experience.

A glimpse of one of the many trends hitting CES 2012 is the advances TV technology presented by Sony.  Sony announced an updated version of its Google TV-powered Blu-ray player, the NSZGP9, as well as their first ever Google TV set-top box, the NSZGS7.

As you can see, the Blu-ray design is different that Sony’s model from last year, the NSZGT1.  That model, while still available, offered a bulkier look and and somewhat complicated remote.  Speaking of remote, it seems that they have upgraded the newer remote that comes with the Google Blu-ray player.  It  supports gestures via three-axis motion control. There’s also a touch pad on the front, plus a back-lit keyboard on the back.
