THE PRODUCT: Japanese electronics maker Toshiba Corp. is developing technology for a 3-D television that won’t require special glasses.

3-D TODAY: Mainstream 3-D TVs now on sale require glasses, though there are already screens that don’t require glasses, mainly intended for store displays. They require the viewer to stand in specific spots, and the image quality is much lower.

AVAILABILITY: The company wouldn’t say, though the Yomiuri newspaper says Toshiba plans to start selling the new TVs by the end of the year.
