3D TV without glasses -- for the brave

Watch 3D TV without glasses!

Having to wear glasses is one of the big drawbacks of current 3D TVs. They can be uncomfortable, they're often expensive, and they make you look like a dork.

Companies like Samsung and Toshiba are working on bringing glasses-free 3D TVs to market, but there are no consumer-level models available yet. Nintendo's 3DS handheld games console promises 3D effects without the eyewear, but it won't be quite the same as sitting back for some sporting action on your 60in LED TV.

Jonathan Post claims to have come up with a novel solution. Okay, it's not that much of solution, but it's certainly novel. By using a pair of electrodes, the system can simulate 3D TV active shutter glasses by rapidly opening and closing alternate eyes. Quite frankly, we think it looks terrifying (if creative!)

Update: Okay maybe it was a hoax after all!

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
