Passive Polarised 3D glasses

Passive Polarised 3D glasses are a form of shutterglasses, made with polarising fibres. One eye can only see horizontally polarised beams, the other, can only see vertically polarised beams. They work in conjunction with a display screen that alternates every refresh between horizontally and vertically polarised light. The display rate is halved, but stereoscopic vision can be achieved with only one screen.

Taking a look at shutter glasses, one of the staple technologies for sterioscopic vision in VR and AR.

At CES 2009, Nvidea unveiled a system of active glasses. Specifically, shutter glasses. The frames alternate polarisation to block light out every second frame, so that each eye gets half the screen update rate of any normal monitor, but will work with a normal output stream just fine.

Large Image Display: Animatrix: Final Flight of the Osiris: Facial Detail
This frame is from the widescreen version of ?Final Flight of the Osiris?, one of the Animatrix animated shorts. It has been considerably scaled back from the original material. Still, it exists to showcase the state of CG faces back in 2003. At least the CG possible when interactive VR techniques are applied to a passive VR production. In the years since this animation short came out, normal passive CG specialists have caught up. The question we ask here is, how come it took four years for them to catch up?

At CHI 2009 (computer Human Interaction conference,) many new modalities of interface were demonstrated. One of the more practical was the product of a team from ETH Zurich's Wearable Computing lab. Vaguely resembling the bastard child of a set of safety glasses and a HMD, the EOG goggles are an eye movement tracking system, that requires no external hardware to operate.

The Adventures of Andre and Wally B
In 1984, there was a passive CG short film, created by the Lucasfilm Computer Graphics Project, which some years later became Pixar. It was one of the very first CG presentations ever made, and used a borrowed supercomputer - the Cray - to render.
