You have the awesome 3D TV in town, but the glasses just make it not so entertaining. Good thing, there's now Toshiba 3D TV -- a no-glass, 3D, crystal clear display. What's with the new Toshiba 3D TV?

If you are the type of viewer that loves the but hates the glasses, then the newest from might be for you! The Tokyo-based company unveiled the world’s first high-definition, liquid crystal display, 3D TV. And here’s the good news, no 3D glasses required. The 3D TV uses a “perpendicular lenticular sheet” that consists an array of small lenses. These small lenses direct light from the TV to nine points in front of it. Due to this, the brain of a viewer that sits inside the viewing zone integrates these points into a single 3D image. The system is akin to Nintendo’s 3DS.

The , that will go on sale in Japan by late December, will come in two sizes. The 12-inch 3D TV will cost 120,000 yen ($1,400) and the 20-inch TV is double the price. The viewing distance for the smaller one is 65 centimeters (25.6 inches ), and 90 centimeters (35.6 inches) for the larger one. No details on the overseas availability has been announced yet.

It seems that even though the technology seems promising, many might be put off by the fact that a viewer should be very close to the television to enjoy the 3D effect, not to mention the hefty price.

So are you going to purchase a Toshiba 3D TV? Leave your answer in the comment.
