Invisible Captions for Movie Theaters


Will we be seeing another new technology to watch captions in movie theaters?  Unique glasses and ultraviolet light could be the key, according to a video on invisible CAPTIONS.

Captions would be viewed with lightweight, half-frame glasses which can be manufactured at low cost. The business plan includes collaboration with Regal Cinemas in Rochester, New York for testing.
