Toshiba Unveils UK’s First Glasses-free 3D TV at IFA 2011

Japanese electronics giant Toshiba has virtually confirmed that they are planning to come up with a new no-glasses 3D TV.

The demand for such a product has been high amongst the 3D TV lovers for a long now. Apparently they want to get rid of those ‘annoying’ 3D glasses as soon as possible, and seems like Toshiba is all set to come to their rescue.

The Japanese TV maker unveiled their brand new 55LZ2 at the IFA show. The 55LZ2 is a massive 55 inch TV which can be viewed from multiple angles in 3D.

The TV comes with a wide range of interesting specs and features such as a rather impressive screen resolution of 3840x2160 pixels, with nine-angle viewing in place.

It also features the company’s cloud based offering Toshiba Places. Toshiba Places comes handy for video sharing, or renting or other similar purposes. Not just that, this brand new offering from Toshiba is also capable of recording digital videos to an external hard drive connected via a USB port.

And then, to make its point clearer, Toshiba handed out the users glasses that had the words “Bye Bye” written right in the middle of its lenses.

Toshiba has attached a jaw-dropping price tag of $11,424 to the 3D TV which makes is more or less unaffordable.
