Hi,

   Waaay back when, I bought 3D glasses (LCD's that synched
with the monitor) and 3D goggles (two little screens mounted
in a headset).  They worked.

...

   The glasses came with games as well.  I don't remember it
much.  Still have the box if it turns up.  Not likely after all this
time.

   Amazing.  While looking for my old joystick, to test a program
for Dave, I found the 3D LCD glasses.

Cheers,

Steve N.

This link below is some of the technical behind laser displays.  Years ago I read about some of the deflection technology and a research paper on 1mm displays like in Red Planet. I can't find the link now, but very interesting.

i would think it would become fuzzy around the edges, particularly in the corners
i'll have to stop at the e store next time i'm over in Tempe to see how it looks   :P

I had recently worked out a 6DOF stereo video HUD system using Texas Instruments DLP technology...
with a resolution of 1920x1080... per eye

http://www.ti.com/product/DLP9500?keyMatch=dlp&tisearch=Search-EN

I was really excited about this until TI gave me a price... that plus the lack of high tech fabrication facilities down here.
Well, it was just another pipe-dream of mine going down the tubes.. I said I'll contact them in 6 months and compare the prices
 :(

that is a bit pricey - lol
guess they don't plan on selling any - at all

as for the manufacturing - that can be a nice little side business
get a pick-n-place and a re-flow oven and off you go
when sales on your own product drops, pick up some turn-key business to keep things running

back in the 70's, i worked for this little company called Flow Technology, Inc
we made flow meters, flow meter calibrators, and associated electronics

this guy name Mo Taylor used to do some of our PCB assembly out of house
he started in his garage, i think - a few assemblers working for him
back then, of course, all the components were through-hole

over time, it turned into a pretty good business
as far as i know - he's still going - MoTay Electronics
guy made millions doing that
