LG wants to prove that 3D eyewear can be comfortable as well as attractive. Toward that end, it's partnering Alain Mikli International from Paris to introduce a new line of premium goggles. The French design firm has more than 30 years of experience in manufacturing glasses and runs a chain of boutiques worldwide in cities like New York and Milan. The chaebol has cited lackluster 3D eyewear as a key hurdle for consumers to adopt the 3D TV technology and hopes to raise the bar in design, fit, and user comfort through this collaboration.
Some of the highlights of its upcoming offerings are a special nose pad to ensure a snug fit, spring-hinged arms with extended tips for added ergonomics, and an optimal weight ratio to minimize fatigue during long usage. These premium 3D glasses will be showcased at CES 2011 and are due for launch after the annual tech trade show in Las Vegas. I just hope LG also addresses the nausea induced by the offscreen flickering issue inherent in most current goggles under room lighting.
