The liquid crystal 3D glasses alternate between a “transparent” mode and “opaque” mode while the images are alternated on the 3D screen, for example, the left eye is blocked when the right eye image appears on the 3D TV and vice versa. This happens so fast that our mind can not detect the flicker in the 3D TV.
