Vizio announces over 21 Theater 3D HDTVs, passive glasses, up to 71-inch size

Vizio is currently the only manufacturer to have a passive 3DTV set on the market, and they aren’t slowing down their Theater 3D TV assault. The company has just announced that they will be releasing 21 models which range in sizes from 21-inches to 71-inches and feature varying LED backlit and edge lit models, sets with Yahoo! Widgets, and even a few Google TV televisions. Passive 3D TVs don’t require active, battery-powered glasses which are larger, heavier, and usually can cause greater eye strain than passive glasses. Plus, you’ll be able to rock those fashionable Oakley or Gucci 3D glasses — wins all around. Full press release after the break. More →

Louis Vuitton Apple iPad case hands-on

Louis Vuitton Apple iPad case hands-on

Well, well, well… it’s finally here. In limited quantities, perhaps, but that’s beside the point. Originally set to be released in 2011, Louis Vuitton has started to ship its Monogram and Damier Graphite iPad cases to select stores. If you own or have ever seen a Louis Vuitton iPhone case, this one isn’t too much different — it’s larger, of course, and a little more luxurious. The case is assembled by stitching the canvas on the outside which provides a perfectly neat seam on the inside for your iPad to sit in. The case on the inside is lined with classic Louis microfiber to protect, and even wipe your device each time you pull it out or slide it in. There is also of course a notch on the end to help grab the iPad as you remove it from the case. We’ll get a better sense for how the case slowly adapts to the shape of the iPad over time, but for now, the fit is snug without being overly tight, though the curved iPad case leaves some room towards the outer opening of the case which isn’t completely ideal. If you’ve been looking for a high end case to carry your iPad in, and the Gucci or even Chanel ones won’t do, we’d say this is a pretty solid choice. The Louis Vuitton iPad case sells for $340.
