Saw this little tidbit on my morning news and found it to be an interesting step forward in gaming:

Nvidia GeForce 3D Vision

Snap on a pair of wireless, battery-powered GeForce glasses and play your video games in glorious 3D. The glasses, which look like a pair of thick plastic sunglasses, then render video games in 3D by using an infrared light that works with both the TV and the PC. The results look, surprisingly, pretty damn good.






Future ETA: $199


The Crystal Ball Says: Few will buy these because you also have to have a special LCD screen with a 120 Hz refresh rate over dual-link DVI, which costs upwards of $500. That means it costs roughly $700 to play Left 4 Dead in 3D -- not in this lifetime, we say.
I did a little more research and sho' 'nuff these are on their way for the PC & TV users.

I'd rather have the option of just clicking an F# button to turn a 3D screen on (if ever created) then wearing some goofy glasses to get 3D. Neat concept, however I'm not interested enough to purchase.

Oh I agree... But think its a push in a direction to that F# key ;) Gotta start somewhere... I mean remember the original Mouse looked like this:



now we have things like the Arc Mouse hahaha

It's a cool idea but I think that playing games in real 3-D would make me sick, and at the very least it'd be annoying, I like to play games the way I'm used to them being, but who knows? Maybe I'll adapt.

I can only imagine the seizure rate drastically increasing if this idea ever caught enough support. Heh - even the most hardcore of hardcore would be somewhat noxious. :p
