RFID in your 3D

The latest craze in movies is 3-D, and while 3-D movies do create amazing effects, the 3D glasses produce a lot of waste. Now, Dolby Laboratories and Xpand3D are working on an RFID solution that would track 3D glasses as they are used, sanitized and reused. The reusable glasses will cut down on waste and also improve the 3-D effect for viewers.

By using RFID technology, the movement of the glasses from theater to sterilization area and back to theater will be tracked at all times, in addition to how many times each pair of glasses is used. Although the system has not yet hit theaters, Dolby is embedding a passive EPC Gen 2 RFID tag in the frame of each pair and has started to test the technology on their own.
