Cute? Or just ridiculous? It may be a combination of both, but one thingit definitely is is a money grab. As 3D continues to take the world bystorm, more and more companies are hoping to get in on the riches. RealDhas been a part of 3D development for years, and their passive 3Dglasses are in tons of movie theaters today. These cheap, flimsy glassesare amazingly one size fits all, though, and obviously a huge marketopportunity is being missed.

Er, was being missed. Today, RealD introduced their newest 3D glasses,and while the design is very similar, the size isn't. These are designedfor the faces of children, built smaller for those smaller eyes thatare likely coercing parents to go to the cinema in the first place. It'ssort of odd to think that these are just now coming to market, and wehave to wonder what exactly is "kid-sized." Oh, and don't let yourlittle ones see this if you've been keeping them away from the moviesdue to the glasses being "for grown-ups only." That one simply won't flyany more.

Here we go again with the 3D debate :P

I just hope that when you pay the over prices at the theatre, that the kids are able to purchase them and use them for the next visits.

3d cheapish glasses are sold at my theater for $0.50 a pop. toss them when you leave if you want to. (I saved them)

These look to be expensive though.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Commercial: "See every thing in HD!"

Me: "Humm I bet my eyes have better resolution than my tv... and the color effect reminds me of the yellow tinted sunglasses I had in the early 90's as a kid...."
