We can't find our 3D glasses!

ShopNBC crowed Friday that it will be the first television retailer to present 3D television to consumers — the Samsung 55-inch 1080p 240Hz 3D LED HDTV. 

Featured at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show, 3D technology is being hyped as the ultimate at-home TV viewing experience.

ShopNBC will be part of the trend when its debuts the Sumsung 3D TV Saturday at 7 p.m. in the “Electronic Connection” show series.

The 55-inch TV from Samsung “combines the exhilarating action of 3D with spectacular image clarity and numerous extras like ‘Internet@TV’—which allows the TV to connect directly to the Web,” as ShopNBC put it in a press release.

Guest expert Elliot Smith will do ShopNBC’s presentation, taking viewers through the Samsung 3D technology while providing guidance on how to integrate 3D technology into your home theater.

“The Samsung 55-inch 1080p 240Hz 3D LED HDTV 3D Kit offers a whole new dimension of home entertainment and includes the 3D ready LED HD TV, Blue-Ray 3D player, 3D starter kit, 3D movie ‘Monsters vs. Aliens’ plus two pairs of battery-powered 3D active glasses, and HDMI cable all in a sleek design that will compliment any décor,” Rod Ghormley, ShopNBC’s vice president of home and electronics, said in a canned statement.

“This new offer from ShopNBC includes everything the consumer needs to enjoy the ultimate entertainment experience at home,” Ghormley said. “It’s the perfect way to prepare for the release of big blockbuster 3D Blu-Ray discs later this month, and a plethora of films being developed utilizing the 3D technology.”
