Sony to Roll Out 3D Television Next Year

Viewers will wear electronic glasses that open and close rapidly in time with images designed for the right and left eye, creating a three-dimensional effect.

Sony said on Sept. 2 it aimed to bring 3D television screens into homes next year, a technology usually found in the cinema at present.

Sony said on the margins of the IFA -- the world's largest consumer electronics fair which opens to the public on Sept. 3 -- that it would "lead the commercialization of 3D by bringing 3D to the home in 2010."

The firm also said it would make other products, such as its VAIO laptops, Blu-ray disc players and Playstation game consoles, compatible with the new technology.
