Will this be the ultimate 3D viewer? Looks cool, I always wanted to buy the normal 2D version.
Anyone already bought this and can share some experiences?

ehhh, I've looked at it a little but it's not really practical. It's more of a toy for people with money to burn.

You can't use it as a main tv cause if anyone comes over...you get to watch tv and they get to watch you looking like a cyborg and watching tv. I'd suggest learning how to do the robot so that your guests can also be entertained while you enjoy the viewer.

I often eat, drink, smoke, while watching tv, your vision to the outside world is limited to a sliver underneath the visor. So I'd probably make a mess knocking over beer and nachos while wearing this thing and doing the robot. Your guests can clean up....they have nothing else better to do.

I guess if you're a traveling salesman and spend a lot of time in hotels it might be worth it if you can watch shows off your laptop.

It is a pretty cool piece of tech but limited in use.

It is not very practical... but that doesn't stop me from wanting it.

Haha I'm with you. I can't help but wonder what the Potato Cod from Under the Sea would look like, or the flight scene in How to Train your Dragon.

Or the snake in Final Destination 4, spears/swords in Alice, CGI water drops in Canyon etc. There are lots of examples of pop with extreme parallax. What concerns me the most is that the virtual screen size doesn't appear as large as advertised. The ad text says it is like looking at a 150" screen, boogle911 says it looks like a desktop monitor, that is a pretty big discrepancy. Look at this thread http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...4#post21088014
