Im about to buy a 3D glasses display, it very cheap. I wonder, should I just wait MS glass product, or just buy this? Can this used also as a camera? I want to see world trough this glasses and put some augmented in it. Like, automatic face zooming, motion tracing, feature memorizing and all.

i would think you could only wear that for about 30 minutes before it causes discomfort - tops
they have some that project the image - that might be better

google for images of "castAR"

Afternoon, All.

I mucked about with the eyeScream wicked3d gear about a dozen years ago:
http://www.stereo3d.com/wicked3d.htm
The gear wasn't marketed very well.
Plus it was restricted to only a few types of graphics cards.
They didn't release the driver code for techie folks to build drivers for more graphics chips and so the games it could be used on were extremely limited.
That didn't stop me from making  a 3d asteroid example proggie that had the asteroids flying out of the screen at you, with a little ship appearing to physically hover above the keyboard.

It's not the gear itself that's important.
It's what cool stuff you can actually do with it, and whether you'll be able to create your own 3d visuals on it.

Cheers,
Scronty
