    When watching 3D movies at home, what kind of 3D glasses do I need?

    I'm not interested in watching anything that uses the old red/green glasses. I'd like to watch the IMAX 3D releases, but do they use require the same type of clear glasses that you use in their theater or the electronic shutter glasses?

    I could be wrong but I don't think you can use the clear glasses type of 3d on a computer monitor. Only the 2color ones.

    It's for my LCD TV if that matters.

    It's gotta be possible b/c they sell the 3D movies on BluRay.

    It depends on the movie. Some 3d movies use the red & blue glasses(Polar Express,Hanna Montana) others use the red & green(Journey To The Center Of The Earth,My Bloody Valentine). The polarized glasses will not work for home 3d movies. Only at the theater.

    Polarized = the clear ones?
    So I was right then.
    I think to use the clear ones there has to be two projectors creating the image. It won't work with monitors as far as I know.
    You can only use the 2-color ones like red/blue or red/green.

    I know they also make shutter glasses where each side opens and closes really fast. You need a 120hz TV/monitor to use them and it breaks each side down into 60hz, making them 3D.

    That all sounds like a bit too much for me. I just wondered if I could buy a $5 pair of IMAX glasses off eBay and have them work at home. I guess not tho'. Thanks.

    EDIT: OH SHIT!!11 This look awesome though!1
