Oakley Selling Limited Edition TRON: LEGACY 3D Glasses

Oakley has teamed up with Disney to improve your 3D movie going experience with their limited-edition Tron: Legacy 3D glasses. They're designed to eliminate the visual "crosstalk" during 3D viewing, but are you willing to dish out $150 for a pair? Not me.

Here are the details:

To engineer Oakley 3D eyewear, Oakley combined its industry-leading frame innovations with lens technologies that maximize the 3D experience by offering unprecedented levels of clarity and visual fidelity. “TRON” Limited Edition 3D Gascan features HDO-3D™, a collection of proprietary lens innovations that have achieved the first optically correct 3D eyewear on Earth. Oakley 3D lenses virtually eliminate the ghosting or “crosstalk” between images that reach each eye from one moment to the next, a potential problem with inferior 3D eyewear.

A second key difference between Oakley 3D eyewear and conventional designs 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 available in November, about a month before Tron: Legacy hits theaters, and you can use these glasses to watch other 3D movies as well. 

What do you all think? Is $150 bucks worth it to you?
