As avid followers of glasses in all shapes and sizes, we watched with excitement as the nation donned its 3D spectacles for last weekâ€™s live, landmark 3D broadcast by Keane. Now that 3D broadcasts on TV and online are becoming more regular, we all have the opportunity to don our 3D glasses more often.
And so to help you track down where to get your hands on 3D glasses, and to see what’s coming up to watch in 3D, we thought we’d research what’s happening where.
Top 5 places to get your 3D specs
