Still haven’t found a pair of 3D glasses for all the stereoscopic delights the immediate future’s about to bring your way? Here’s one you might prefer over the competition: the Youniversal, billed as the world’s first personalized 3D electronic eyewear.
Created by Xpand, the specs offers up a nice break from the one-size-fits-all designs that exist among the current crop of 3D glasses. The personalization don’t stop at the physical frames which come in multiple sizes, either — you can tailor the way they work using a number of parameters, too.
The Youniversal can be adjusted to sync with any television that uses active shutter 3D, apart from interfacing with your devices over a variety of connections, including Bluetooth, RF, IR and DLP-link. Tweaking the parameters isn’t just done to make it work with your home theater gear, though — the idea is to personalize it for your own viewing preferences. That means, you can customize it to perform more efficiently, depending on a number of factors, such as whether you’re wearing prescription glasses, the room’s ambient brightness or if you’re hankering for subtle 3D effects (as opposed to full-blown, “shark wants to bite your head off” realism).
All modifications can be accomplished via a companion smartphone app, available for both iOS and Android platforms, which makes it quite handy to operate. Plus, the glasses don’t look all that bad — the Gigodesign-styled frame is actually quite attractive.
