I remember reading about goggles you wear and that's your monitor

man I'd like that, anyone know if it ever went to market?...anyone ever try it?

I may actually be insane.

Surely that's going to be really bad for your eyes? Not to mention the likely low resolutions. That said, I'm sure I've seen various implementations of this, mostly aimed at consoles or other specific goals.

not ot at all vertigo, you make a good point, as does speedy

I'm not gonna wear them all the time, just for certain apps...for instance;

THREE DEE MOVIES!!!!

and;

THREE DEE GAMES!!! (which they would write if the goggles were any good)

specifically;

ASTEROIDS!!!!

anyway, I would love them

Unles I'm missing something those aren't monitor replacements, they are a 3d add on to make your regular monitor look 3d.

These are head mounted monitor systems. They've been around for years (saw the first demo in ~1996) but very pricey.

Very low resolution systems (like old TV) are under $1000, 1280x1024 are over $10K.

They are common in military systems. I have a displays expert coming into town in 2 weeks. I'll ask him over lunch about eye strain and such.

PS Avoid the CRT versions. 10kV next to your brain is not a good idea...

These suckers are awesome: http://www.myvu.com/ I had a chance to try them out, and they blew me away!

Eye strain: none. The device makes it seem like you are looking far into the field of your vision to a projected image, just like you would at the cinema. Very cool.
