3D Fashion Eyewear – A Reality in the Offing

16 05 2010

Picture this – You’re watching a 3D Movie with a pair of 3D glasses sitting comfortably on your nose and the person sitting next to you blurts out “Nice glasses, where did you get them from…?”.

The way 3D glasses have been designed till now with cheap materials being used both for the frame as well as the glasses, this kind of a scenario seems far from reality. And with 3D venturing into the Homes with 3D LCD and LED HDTVs, the scenario only gets worse.

But, wait no more. An Australian company is trying to change the way we experience 3D. They’ve unveiled a quartet of 3D fashion eyewear collections that will have you watching the 3D version of any movie in style. You can pick from a range of frames from the Disposables Collection, Movie Collection, Designer Collection or Directors Collection. Read the rest of this entry »

My wife recently had an official trip scheduled for Pune – the second largest city of Maharashtra, India and she insisted that I accompany her as it had been some time that we had ventured out of our home city – New Delhi. Though, I am usually very keen in visiting and exploring new places, somehow I was reluctant to go as I was unsure if the city would have enough places of interest for me to explore alone in the scorching heat while my wife would be busy in her official meetings throughout the day.

Just two days before she was to leave, I asked her about the Hotel in which she will be staying in while in Pune, to which she gave me a name – which honestly didn’t ring any bells as I had never heard the name of the Hotel before. Out of sheer curiosity as to what kind of Hotel was this and what were the facilities it offered its guests, I browsed it’s website after searching for it in good old Google. To my surprise, the Hotel seemed to be running successfully in 3 prominent cities in India and offered some unique and interesting facilities like – ‘In Room Check-In and Check-Out’ and ‘Personal Butler and Chef for every Room’ to name a few. Out of all these facilities, the one which was most striking and extraordinary IMO was a device they were offering, through which you could wirelessly control anything and everything of your room. Switch lights on and off, control the air conditioning, turn blinds up or down, control your TV, browse the Internet, access a 5,000 strong movie library, play music of your choice etc. Being Technologically inclined and equally curious, I wanted to see what this device could be like and if it actually did all of the things as advertised on the Website. And, thus I decided to accompany my better half on her official trip.
