Yeah, I have a feeling that before 3D without any glasses whatsoever is introduced to the public, in an effective and affordable way, is farther away than people might hope. That and I have a feeling it's a "different type" of 3D experience, and one that when first introduced to the market will not be as effective overall as what's available right now.

The brightness has to compensate for the lens tint leaving one to wonder how effective 3-D is in a the living room in the middle of the day.
The passive 3D glasses in the works won't cut down the brightness nearly as much, though like I said, from what I've read the first ones to hit the market will cut the resolution in half, won't be for a while after that in which a solution where passive glasses will be at full resolution.
