This year's CES was awash with 3D TVs, with each manufacturer extolling the virtues of its own sets. What they weren't trumpeting about quite so loudly was the glasses that are needed to go with them.

The XpanD 103 Active-Shutter glasses (main picture) are, save for a few tweaks for home use, identical to those found in some cinemas. The main style element is the option of roughly 12 different colour options. No great aesthetic leap forward there, then.

Both of these are similar to offerings by all the major manufacturers.

Manufacturers should take note, and perhaps think about working with some established eyewear brands. Only then will we be saved from the long arm of the fashion police.
