    If you hate the way that most 3D glasses look then you’re not alone. They’re mostly terrible looking and uncomfortable. These Oakley 3D Gascans look absolutely fantastic.

    Basically they’re the standard Oakley Gascan model glasses but with RealD compatible lenses. Oakley says that these glasses have their proprietary HDO-3D technology which eliminates crosstalk and distortion. That’s the stuff that normally gives you a crosseyed headache while you’re watching 3D movies.

    These babies will set you back $120 at Oakley if you’ve been looking for some high grade 3D glasses to go with your new flat panel.

    If those are just a little bit too cool for you then you can always get a little bit of Tron in your 3D glasses with these $150 limited edition versions.

    Thanks for the tip @rusty_rat!
