Samsung will exhibit (via Oled-Display) at the CES 2011 the world's lightest 3D glasses weighing only 28g. Besides the limited amount of 3D content the 3D glasses are the biggest issues the current 3D TV technology is facing. Samsung tries to make the best out of the situation and at least make the 3D glasses as light as possible. In partnership with the famous eye-wear company Silhouette, Samsung shaved off 10g compared to conventional 3D glasses.
The circuit and batteries have been moved to the far end of the legs which results into a comfortable weight distribution and make the 3D glasses look very fragile.
If these new 3D glasses will have an impact on the adoption of 3D TVs is though questionable. Consumer electronics companies will have to do more to convince consumers that 2011 is the year to buy a 3D TV.
