    Default SMS 3D Glasses Technology Now

    I was thinking... Sega was quite ingenious with the 3D glasses for the Master System, and it's a shame it didn't help it sales, but thats a story for another day...
    My focus is that this technology has been around since like '87 and NO ONE has really touched on it since.

    Say, all games actually presented in 3D with polygons would just need to use two seperate closely spaced angles for each eye, but could also just show the one standard angle for people without 3D glasses and if they could be manufactured and sold for ~$80 in 1987 they shouldn't be much more now to make...

    By the way, my threads title was intended to be a play on "Apocalypse Now" (which was in fact a play on "Nirvana Now"...) but instead it just reads kinda funny...

    Personally I'd love to see a new 3D peripheral for a current system. They have all these pseudo 3D multi systems + TV thingamabobbers on eBay and the sort for about 50.00. I bet they work like crap.

    Yeah...um, Asus has been using that technology with GeForce cards for years now (generally their "Deluxe" cards). It's neat but it can be a pain to configure.

    There's some infomercial that plays sometimes that's selling the same technology, and software that'll make anything on your PC into 3-D.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again: If a Color Virtual Boy comes out, I'll buy it.

    but, i really know nothing about the SMS....how exactly do the 3d glasses work?? also, is it gimmicky, or do you actually feel like it is 3d???

    They work quite well at making the sprites seem like thay are coming out of the screen. It's like a 'pop up book' effect.

    They use LCD shutters, with one eye open, other closed, in a frquency timed with the images on screen, that tricks you into seeing the two separate eye perspectives.

    I wish the glasses were bigger (and sturdier) for my massive cranium though. Why didn't they consider the fact that 20 years later grown men would want to play with them?

    3D Glasses Now! add to the power of AMD's latest desktop processors by adding such useful instructions as the slns ("Suck Less than Nintendo's") operand (boolean value used in comparing two fanboy posts), and contain specific support "Make Slower" effect when playing Space Harrier (this will be fixed when Epicenter releases the Master System Overclocking Kit of course ;)

    In all seriousness, I remember seeing a set of Sony glasses which never seem to sell that well and are pretty high cost. To do anything of any resolution it seems to me you'd have to have a pair of really high cost screens in there, nevermind the shutter system of Nintendo's 3D System glasses are hopelessly outdated and crude.

    Aahha, so they DO work the same as the Nintendo system's glasses. Lol, what a waste of time :/

    Well.. I've been inside a VB. A VB uses mirrors, and a red LED effect.

    The SMS effect is superior in every way IMO, and in full colour. Zaxxon 3D is great.
