It can never be true 3D when you have a flat screen. For true 3D you need dynamic focus depth. Ie, your eyes can focus on any part of the scene and it seamlessly shifts the focus to there. As long as this does not happen there is no real 3D.

Even if both eyes get different perspective and thus pseudo 3D, you can not focus on any part of the scene - the focus would be infinite (like it is now on a normal screen) and thus, not real 3D.

Exactly. And when I try to focus on something that is out of focus, or when my eyes experience infinite focus, that's when the headaches start.

It looks awesome, but half the population can't use it until there's some kind of eye tracking.


On the flip side, hook one of these up to a high resolution camera, filtered through your ipad/smartphone/tablet, and pumped back into your goggles, and we're one step closer to gargoyles from Snow Crash.

I know people who would give organs or major limbs at this point to walk around in permanent augmented reality.
