Well, based on my test screening, they work perfectly. I took them to a 3D screening of Thor, and had the theater-provided 3D glasses and the 2D glasses side by side. Thor has some really effective, pronounced 3D when viewed with the theater gasses, as did some of the previews. The 2D glasses were so good at flattening them back to 2D that I was really quite shocked. No residual blurriness (one of my big complaints about 3D is the sometimes blurry images), and really no hint at all that I wasn't looking at a "natively" 2D projection.
If you aren't a fan of 3D but feel like you just can't escape it, you can buy these in confidence.
many people experience discomfort watching 3-d movies, and until now, no one has really seemed to care
why haven't these been made before?
Frustrated by all the blockbuster films ONLY being released in 3D, or being mostly released in 3D? Get migraines or headaches when you try to watch it, in 3D? Even get sick to your stomach? Then if you want to be able to watch your anticipated films on the big-screen, and not have to wait for the DVD release, you need to get these glasses.
They are very comfortable, and as sturdy as any of the 3D glasses that are given to you when you go to a 3D movie. Occasionally, the film will get a bit blurry around the edges, but that isn't due to the glasses. That is a product of the 3D filming process, because they want certain objects on screen to stay in the background, and other items to pop out at you. The glasses can't stop it, but it's rare.
The only thing I would caution you about is to be careful with your glasses at the end of the movie. They look like the regular 3D glasses, so be careful not to throw them into the recycle bin with all the rest!
Thanks for an awesome product!
IMAX 3D movies: Not Compatible
I purchased a set these glasses after watching a film critic who couldn't stand 3D but wanted to watch IMAX movies. I tried wearing the glasses at a couple of normal 3d movies and was very impressed with the results. These are also compatible with any 3D television that uses non battery operated glasses.
So follow up, these glasses DO NOT work on IMAX 3D movies. While disappointing, these glasses still work wonderfully with Real 3D.
One more note, I saw a reviewer bought a pair of these to use at amusement park attractions, those typically use IMAX 3D technology.
However, do yourself a favor and READ the product description. The only negative reviews on this product are from people who DID NOT READ and tried to use these glasses at something other than a RealD screening like IMAX.
