Samsung: no decent glasses-free 3DTV for 10 years

Sammy is taking a glass half-empty stance on the future of 3D without glasses

If you were planning on enjoying 3D without the pesky glasses anytime soon, then try not to let Samsung’s realism (pessimism?) put you off.

The Korean giant reckons decent glasses-free sets will be unlikely to become a possibility in the next 10 years, even though rival Toshiba is planning to unleash them this year.

The company says five years of research is needed to sort out the viewing angle problems associated with such screens. We'd probably take the compromise in the interim, Sammy. Now get back to work.
