    Hmm.. I'm not a big fan of 3d, but the times i have been to see it it gave me a chronic headache (except when i saw Tron at the imax, so the tech they use there seems to be better) so I may pick some of these up and give them a try.

    If I do, I will of course report back to bit-tech.

    £240 for prescription glasses? I think I'll pass on 3D again.

    That same company make some 3D ones too.

    While no doubt as over-priced as the Oakley ones, it'd be interesting to see how they compare (I like the thinner frames on the Gunnar ones myself).

    I guess we can assume these are circular polarized, not 90-degree.

    I thought maybe these glasses would have a special feature such as x-ray vision or something more akin to the dubious name?

    So I can pay £2 in the cinema for a pair of Joe 90 styled 3D specs or I can pay oakley the princely sum of £95 for the simple pleasure of a curved surface that took them 2 years to develop? Seriously?

    Considering Oakley already make glasses this should have been a real easy step for them to make and if they could have them doubled up as sunglasses may even have been worth considering the hefty price tag for the sake of a designer brand.

    Think I'll stick to the Joe 90 specs for now, lol

    I swear tomorrows world showed a tv in 3d without hte need for glasses, that must have been 15 years ago or so. I still reckon 3d won't survive until they get rid of the need for glasses, active or otherwise

    Yep, all the passive, polarised 3D glasses use circular polarisation afaik.

    No, you've missed the point - did you even read the review? :sigh:

    I think there's a mistake in the Value score...

    But anyway, less headaches is a good thing I suppose.

    They need to make 3D lenses that fit into my current oakley frames. Then they would be onto something.

    Clip on 3D filters for those with prescription glasses anyone? Kinda like the dorky clip on sunnies ;) then obviously just extend the frame for those without glasses..
    the price is a bit high... most of that goes into labeling them "Oakley". Should cost no more than an pair of polarised sunglasses surely.. same tech no?

    passive is a way better route then shutter glasses but whats even better is the no glasses needed 3d tech being worked on by companies like Toshiba, thats what I am holding out for :)

    I lol hard at the thought of people dumping the HDTVs they dropped several grand on a few years ago in favor of this flavor of the week. I can't think of a tech development I've cared less about than 3D. Give me holographic projection TV and maybe we'll have something.

    Several of oakleys range have interchangeable lenses. Clip the mirrored lenses out and put a set of clear lenses for mountain biking in low light in their place.

    And have a look at oakley prices. A set of polarising shades will set you back £100-120 easily. And it's worth it for the lens quality. So these are actually slightly cheaper.

    I still wouldn't buy them though
