A US company has just launched the first widescreen monitor that will allow gamers to blast their way through their favourite games in 3D.
Does it involve wearing silly headgear, because I've tried it. While it is cool, the novelty wears off fast.
Wow I would love to play Guild-Wars in 3-D!
You should See WoW on it, I use to work at Alienware in the Production lab, where we tested out new products, we got one of these 3D monitors in, it was around June of 06, people gathered around to see it, it was kind of cool but then again it was a very early product, hopefully this one has improved.
how does it work?
apparently lots of devs are making games with the enabled ability to be shown in 3d. So basically you play a game on you new 3d monitor, throw on some 3d glasses, and your good to go! Or at least thats my understanding from the article.
If it anything like other 3d hardware or software, the screen will flash between images intended for your left and right eyes. This will give the illusion of depth in your games.
if its not comfortable it could surely cause some nauseating sensations, but hopefully it turns out ok. I will at least try it, and if its all its cracked up to be then this is a nice new piece of technology.
Trust me it wont make you vomit, when I tried the one we had at Alienware, it was like basically looking at a regular everyday monitor, the 3D effects then werent like OMG ITS POPPING OUT OF THE SCREEN type thing, so it didnt really do anything to make us want to throw up lol.
My last is 10 years old and in use on the "kids" computer. My current monitor shoould last longer.
Now they are introducing monitors that will be obsolete by the time they reach store shelves.
yea im not to impressed, i really want to get a tv that is actually 3d, like in the movie paycheck, where the tv actually produced a 3d picture
me too to me it is waste of your money
To maximize the gaming experience, iZ3D offers a variety of fashionable ""passive polarized glasses for 3D monitor viewing"". The 22” widescreen iZ3D monitor displays impressive into and out-of-screen 3D images. Its advanced technology is compatible with almost all popular applications, and users can easily switch between 3D and 2D viewing.
Myself. From what others are saying, its not much. But I really would like to try out playing i dunno, lets just say CS-Source in 3d, would be sweet I think.
