This year tech companies went over the top to shove 3D into everybody's homes, offices and pockets. We're not going to lie: we covered a lot of 3D tech. While we mostly complained about cumbersome 3D glasses and converted 3D content, 3D's not really terrible. It has its flaws, but it's getting better with every month.
Leading the 3D revolution are obviously Sony, Nintendo and Toshiba. No other consumer electronics companies have bet as much on 3D as these, so don't be surprised to see more than a few of their products make our list of 15 3D gadgets that are worth your money this year.
