You know that neighbor you have down the street? The one who always tries to one up you on everything? You know the one.
Holiday lights. Snow blowers. Lawn care. Power tools. Car wax. You name it. He has to be Da Man, always one upping you.
And now he has the Mother of all Home Theater Systems. The super turbo version, complete with a remote for the remote. And you know he totally has one of those vintage looking popcorn machines and all the latest 3D bells and whistles that he could Google online. And now you have to get up from your 60 inch plasma (so last year, dude…) and that comfy sofa dent to gawk at his new 61 inch on his new dent free sofa. You grit your teeth and get ready for 3 hours of Avatar in 3D, plus the bonus disc.
Now imagine his face when you show up rocking your new pair of 2D Glasses!
Oh no you di’nt–?!
Dat’s rite. 2D. As in suck the 3D out of the room and make a movie look like a normal movie again. So much for the $10,000 Best Buy charge.
I’m thinking that the new 2D glasses were more likely designed for those of us who literally black out or toss our popcorn before the 3D coming soon previews finish rolling, as opposed to sticking it to your neighbor. Trust me, I am all about the newest, coolest tech and would absolutely get all up into next week’s Apple delivery truck if they let me. I pretty much am that guy in your neighborhood.
But I can’t do 3D at the IMAX without my Goobers and a giant Diet Coke to wash down some Dramamine. Hallelooh! Those days are finally over. 2D glasses are here to save both the day, and the lap of any person unlucky enough to sit next to me during Tron:Legacy. No more headaches, googly oogly eyeballs or roller coaster rumblies.
Check out the 2D Glasses site. They are dirt cheap.
Granted, they look like they should come with a plastic Groucho nose attached, but it’s not like anyone will see you once the lights go down and you’re face down in that tub of popcorn.
3D technology is pretty much crashing and burning all around us right now. And not in the good surround sound way. Except for that guy in your neighborhood, the public hasn’t really embraced this 3D thing in their home or in the local theaters so far…so if these geeky specs can afford a few more of us the opportunity to see Shrek without bed spins, then I’ll be rocking them like Harry Potter.
These lenses are 2DanCool.
(You gotta admit that’s clever. Come on.)
