3-D Movie Glasses that Double for Daily Wear Proposed

3-D movie glasses are cool, as long as you wear them inside the moviehouse. Outside, you'd simply look stupid and childish. Why would you wear them in the street anyway? To use as shades?

Well, it may seem a bit farfetched, but 3-D movie glasses may soon be ordinary fare for hipsters and other fashionistas even while not watching 3-D movies. The reason is because brands like Oakley may soon be making them. According to DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, soon, all movies will be made in 3-D.

Katzenberg made this prediction in the first ever live transatlantic telecast in high-definition digital 3-D. He spoke to about a thousand delegates all wearing 3-D glasses. He says that hat DreamWorks Animation has been collaborating with eyeglass firms Luxottica and Oakley to make daily wear glasses (shades) that also function in-theater as 3-D glasses.

Katzenberg says they are about to introduce a transition lens that people can use outside as sunglasses, and as 3-D glasses when inside the movie theater. "People are going to own their own glasses. I think from a fashion standpoint and a coolness standpoint people will want to have their own glasses. I think that will be among the many changes that will come along."

Oh, these new shades won't be those with the red and blue glasses. These would be real cool ones like those worn by Tom Cruise (top). See more articles on movies in Hots Up Movies.
