On October 20, 2010 Oakley announced they are releasing  glasses that are the best way to view  the upcoming movie “: Legacy”, however these superb optics will enhance other movies as well.  Future sequels for example; will jump off the screen in never before seen optical clarity when using these  “TRON Limited Edition featuring HDO-™, a collection of proprietary lens innovations that have achieved the first optically correct on Earth”.  Oakley claims they “virtually eliminate the ghosting or “crosstalk” between images that reach each eye from one moment to the next, a potential problem with inferior eye wear”.

Oakley best describes a second key difference between Oakley 3D eye wear and conventional designs.  What helps set Oakley’s 3D glasses apart is the lens curvature. “Greater curvature around the eyes provides a wider field of view, but without highly precise optics, even a mild curve can cause visual distortion. Oakley technology maintains optical clarity so the wearer can enjoy a wide field of sharp vision. The curvature of Oakley 3D lenses has the added benefit of minimizing distracting glare”.

The glasses will be out in November and the new Tron movie hits the big screen in December, so if you love all 3D movies, you may want to put some money away now as these will set you back about $150 bucks.  Great that they will work with other 3D movies, I just need to warn you not to wear them outside.

If you want real sunglasses, Oakley is coming out with a pair that is also Tron inspired.  I have yet to find a price on the “TRON” commemorative sunglass that are based on a design from the company’s Elite Collection.  I found just  what is on the Oakley “Tron” press announcement.  Sans price, the post stated “This non-3D eye wear is a special edition of Oakley Elite Pit Boss® and features HDPolarized lenses with High Definition Optics® (HDO®). Engineered with ultra-lightweight titanium plates, the frame is embellished with graphics inspired by TRON: Legacy”.

One thing for sure is either pair will take a hit to your wallet right before the Christmas Holiday, so for something that is free to enjoy now, you can do the following and then thank me later.

Don’t forget to comment below.  MRT is curious who would put out that much for 3D Glasses just because they are Tron branded, or for you 3D movie fanatics is this a must have?

    As much as I love Tron and want to see the new movie, the Tron branding doesn’t hold much weight with me. I might spend 150 on a pair of 3D glasses if I knew they will work on any 3D movie I wanted to see and if they feel better than the cheap set you get at the theater. I have spent nearly as much on Sunglasses, so why not movie glasses?

    I see the cost of these 3D glasses as being based on the branding and not the actual product. Sure, the lens is probably a bit difficult to make, but enough to warrant such a price increase? Especially a price increase from the free glasses theatres usually offer. I would like to see someone attempt a DIY with existing flat glasses to see if some curvature can be gained without too much distortion.

    I agree on the price point. A DIY would be great but my understanding of lenses and 3D is if you are off even a little bit you will get the ghosting and slight blur. Oakley is known for their glasses, expensive as they may be the only pair I have ever liked (as in style) and how clear everything was looking through them were my old pair of Oakley’s. Was the saddest day when I found out they were stolen (back in High School). At $150 though I wold like to see that I could wear them outside too. I mean, useless to look that good in a dark movie theater… right? lol

    3D glasses and kits still expensive and not for normal consumers. I find that it becomes uncomfortable at a point and therefore a 3d tv is a better idea than glasses !!! Nintendo listened, Sony listened etc but overall it too early in the market for common consumers.

    I totally agree about the fit becoming uncomfortable with the standard 3D glasses. My hope is for that amount of money they fit like normal Oakleys and then it would be more worth the investment. For home, I would prefere the 3D TV’s that do not need the glasses too.

    I think 3D is cool. Oakley makes 3D uber cool. Love them!

    I’m not into sports, but I think I could watch hours of it in 3-D. I was so mesmerized by the tiny little min that literally looked like they were walking off the screen. Felt like I was playing with barbies or Gi joes as an adult to watch a basketball game. Definatly “game” changing.

    I’d love to win these because we just bought a 3D t.v.for Christmas and these would be so much better than trying to fit the regular 3D glasses over my prescription ones.
    I like on FB and tweeted.

    Thats one thing I hate about all this 3d stuff. Totally don’t fit the glasses. Nice to see something like this.

    i don’t like my 2d world

    My my.. 150 is a bit much, but then I wouldn’t mind if I got these as just glasses.. I don’t really feel the need for 3D glasses that I would atmost wear for an hour every few days to be designed uniquely.
