Shutter Glasses

Shutter Glasses are a type of immersive display that works in tune with a specially configured monitor or projector. The monitor refreshes its display at a pre-set exact rate, preferably higher than normal. The shutter glasses then close the shutters on each eye alternatively such that each eye catches every other refresh from the monitor or projector. The result is the illusion of 3D display. However the shutters effectively halve the display update causing eye strain and muscle fatigue over extended usage of twenty minutes or more.
