The new glasses, that will only work with Passive rather than Active glasses will come in a range of different styles and be available in the US by the end of 2010 and globally in 2011.

"Oakley 3D eyewear will be a milestone in 3D entertainment," said Oakley CEO Colin Baden.

"In addition to the first optically correct 3D eyewear in the world, Oakley has achieved the first 3D lenses ever made with high-wrap curvature, essential for maximizing the wearer's field of vision. A full panoramic view can be experienced without the need to turn one's head in order to see what is happening at the corners of the theatre screen," The company adds.
