There’s video of a Wipeout version here: http://www.engadget.com/2009/09/04/ps3s-new-3d-mode-captured-on-video-coming-in-2010-to-all-exist/ seems pretty cool. I suppose its giving people an IMAX-like home gaming experience. Looked into this topic a little more, and found that Unity (game engine) ships with some stereoscopic samples, and there’s some cool samples in this field here: http://local.wasp.uwa.edu.au/~pbourke/miscellaneous/stereographics/Unitystereo/ A colleague of mine also has a pair of NVidia’s 3D glasses on his desk, so I gave them a go also (in conjunction with Unity) and have to say, it was pretty cool. http://www.nvidia.com/object/product_geforce_3D_VisionKit_us.html Much like a physical "volume control" on your speaker system, these glasses come with a physical "depth control" which in fairness was cool. Anyway, just thought I’d share the wealth. This tech didn’t make much headway in traditional TV/Film but perhaps its better suited to games. -B.
