Dolby Shows Off Ugliest 3D Glasses in History

If there is a particularly hot place in hell set aside for ugly, these new Dolby 3D glasses will be right there beside the Yugo. Dolby has announced that it has some new reusable 3D glasses for theaters to give moviegoers rather than the disposable glasses that they use now in most places. They even have RFID tags to help “control inventory” which really means set off alarms if you try and steal them.

Aside from all the ugly, the glasses sound pretty good. They have a special 3M multilayer optical film that is good for hundreds of wash and use cycles. The glasses have larger frames with a loose temple for comfort. They are also designed to fit over the top of most prescription glasses and they have a flap over the top to keep light out. Dolby will offer children’s sizes next quarter. My local theater can’t seem to get all that sticky goo off the floor, the last thing I want is to wear some glasses the nasty person before me used to pick their ears.

They will cost about $12 per pair, making 3D movie tickets cheaper since they can be reused figures Dolby. I doubt that reusing glasses to save money is something that would be passed on to the people there to buy tickets.
