Toshiba glasses-free 3D TV sales shock

AUTHOR: Inavate

Sales of Toshiba’s glasses free TVs have flopped in Japan, according to a report by English language newspaper, The Japan Times.

Sets went on sale in late December and the newspaper reported the company had only sold 500 20” models and even less of its 12” version.

With consumers shunning the technology questions will be asked about its viability in the professional market. Furthermore, if Toshiba cannot generate the sales volume that it requires then it will not be able to lower the product’s currently high cost.
