3D TV without glasses is coming, but Toshiba isn't offering any details on the technology.

3D TV Without Glasses? Television viewers get ready. TV sets will soon have 3D technology without needing those red & blue glasses. The 3D television technology exists and companies are building them right now.

TV sets that allow people to watch 3D images without needing the special lenses is coming. For example, Nintendo is using it in its 3DS handheld video game device. It demonstrated the technology at the E3 show in Los Angeles.

Without glasses does mean coming up with a way to display three-dimensional shapes. There are in-store three-dimensional displays that transmit different images at various angles to create an illusion of dimension and depth. However, they require viewers to stand in specific locations.

Mitsubishi, which is reportedly also working on 3-D TVs, will use the same technology as that in current three-dimensional in-store displays. Auto-stereo technologies are essentially stereoscopic in nature. They provide a slightly different image to each eye to enhance the illusion of depth in two-dimensional visual images.
