Sanwa Universal 3D Glasses Work on 3D TVs from Japan Only

Sanwa has recently unveiled a pair of brand new 3D glasses that the company claims are universal. However, Sanwa's definition of universal seems to be a bit more "defined," then some might imagine. The company has announced that these new universal 3D glasses will work with a wide range of 3D TVs, but here's the kicker: they have to be from a Japanese company.

Sanwa points out Sony, Sharp, Toshiba, and Panasonic as manufacturers that their new universal 3D glasses will work with just fine. Companies like LG, Samsung, and Vizio are apparently being left out in the cold. The glasses are available right now through Sanwa's online store, and cost around $7,800 yen, or about $95. You'll be able to charge the glasses through USB, though. And they're probably better than not having any glasses to watch your 3D entertainment.
