Yomiuri insists that Toshiba is working on the technology and will produce a television that does not need the much-maligned glasses required by most 3D technology.

Philips has shown off a glasses-free 3D TV using the lenticular technology, and Nintendo’s 3DS uses the same tech to bring 3D to the portable console.
So, it certainly makes sense that major television manufacturers [...]
