Oakley to release 3D eyewear

John Moe Sep 16, 2010

If 3D is going to take over our lives, at least we don’t have to look like total dorkwads in the glasses provided by the local cinemultiplex. Oakley announced that they will sell their own 3D glasses with “optically correct” lenses (everyone’s so worried about being OC these days) in time for the holiday season. The perfect gift for the person on your list who wants to look like a big shot at the new Harry Potter film. The specs were tested at Dreamworks’ facilities and are said to be compatible with any 3D movie that comes along. In a related story, any pair of glasses you buy are compatible with the 3D experience that is life itself.
