Is there a reason the industry hasn't released the option of a personal head-mounted 3D display?


I can't understand the emphasis on large, materials-hungry TVs with glasses as the only way for a consumer to watch 3D.


There have been huge leaps forward in technology since a few sample head-mounted displays (eg Olympus Eyetrek) were released years ago. Small OLED displays would be much easier and cheaper to produce than a 50" OLED TV panel and would be the ideal introduction of the technology.

Those only work with head tackers and with head mounted cameras

matching virtual and real stereoscopic geometry.

It is called Virtual Reality.

If you use it for TV or movie viewing you will get sea sickness in 5 to 15

minutes and it will drive you nuts when every time you turn your head and you

see the screen in the same place.


I had one of those made by Sony, model Glasstron

LDI-D100BE and had experience the tortures.

Sold it on eBay for US400 originally paid US$2500.
