LG Electronics has announced it will introduce 3D glasses designed in conjunction with French eyewear maker Alain Mikli. By combining its expertise in 3D TVs with Alain Mikli's know-how in eyewear design, LG said it is delivering the best quality in every aspect of 3D technology.
French designer Alain Mikli has gained an international reputation by providing unbeatably comfortable and stylish glasses for over 30 years. The company operates a collection of flagship boutiques around the world in cities such as New York, Paris and Milan, attracting fashion-conscious consumers.
"Numerous studies have shown that of all the challenges facing 3D technology accep-tance, the glasses always rank near the top," said Mr. H.S. Paik, president of LG Elec-tronics Gulf. "The fact is, 3D viewing glasses don't have to be ugly and uncomfortable. We've just proven that with Monsieur Mikli's help in creating what are probably the best, most stylish 3D glasses in the world."
The new glasses raise the bar for 3D eyewear in terms of design, fit, and user comfort, according to the manufacturer. Unlike the current 3D glasses made of plastic, LG and Mikli opted to make their 3D glasses from select metals, while also sticking to the French designer's signature streamlined design.
The new “premium” 3D glasses will be available worldwide after being showcased at CES 2011, which recently took place in Las Vegas. These will be provided with LG's 2011 new premium 3D TVs.
