We'll know that the future is here when consumers can go into Best Buy and see an aisle devoted to 3D TV glasses. Third-party glasses really haven't made much news yet, but Xpand hopes to change that.

Currently, all the major 3D TV manufacturers are making their own glasses, but the problem is they are all proprietary. So Samsung's glasses will only work on Samsung TVs.

PC Mag spoke with a small company called Xpand that is going to be one of the first to offer universal 3D glasses will work with any set. Most people don't recognize that name, but they are the ones who manufacture the glasses that most movie theaters use.

The X103 series will be able to detect infrared signals from virtually every 3D set. Xpand says the glasses will be marketed as a "fashion item" as they will be available in 12 colors, ranging in sizes for kids to adults.

The glasses are to be priced at between $120 and $150.
