Sony makes things personal with 3D headset prototype

This looks like yet-another about-to-die fad.

A decade or go ago, I bought some ELSA 3D glasses, but the company went belly-up and the drivers of course never worked on the next version of windows.

A few years after that, I bought the Kaiser XL35 glasses, around the same time that the video-card company stopped producing updates to their driver software for this as well. so – windows advances another version, and I get another expensive paperweight.

A year or so ago, I bought the eMagin Z800 glasses, around the same time that nVidia produced their own 3D ones. no surprise then, to find out that nVidia no longer produce drivers capable of supporting my Z800 (or anyone else maybe?) – so yet again my lovely toy is unable to actually be *used* on anything.

3D is cool, and the market is definitely getting more interested – but until the only 2 manufacturers of display cards (ATI/nVidia) get firmly behind supporting this stuff into the future – I think there’s a great lesson to learn here – all these glasses are time-limited “junk”.
