Japanese website Youmiuri is reporting today that Toshiba is going to release a 3DTV before the end of the year that does not require viewers to wear special glasses when watching 3D content.
The site claims Toshiba has developed an imaging system that emits rays of light at different angles which forms 3D images naturally. Current 3-D TVs project different images to viewers' right and left eyes at high speeds. Through the use of high speed shutters, 3-D glasses block the right eye from seeing left eye images and the left eye from seeing images meant for the right eye. The result is a stereoscopic (i.e. 3D) image.
