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

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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
