Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but I have to ask it.

Do we (humans) see in 3D? I mean, if I watch a 3D video where you have to where those glasses and stuff seems to come out at you, well, we don't see anything like that.

Really, it would seem as we see 2D, but just that shading gives us the perception of depth. We don't see anything more than if we were looking at a picture, which is 2D.

So, I never thought that watching those 3D videos was very fun, and I have no idea how they are implementing this into games.. I mean, what is it that is "3D" and coming out at you?

Maybe I am missing something here..?

I love video eyewear and I always try to be updated about the latest models. I have the VR920 but for me they have almost no difference with the other models featured by Vuzix. I bought two different models of video eyewear in relaxView (I think they are Dutch) (www.relaxview.eu) to play video games with my brother and I prefer that company in terms of quality.
Good luck!

An image that we see is 3-D because you can see all of the sides of it. 2-D, however, is different; there is length and width (with drawings, you can make a 3-D image with shading but the problem is that the flat plane interferes, so, for something like a face, you can't see how it curves on all layers). Video games are already 3-D; the only problem is that it is displayed on a flat plane, so it isn't 3-D to the real world. Oh, and if think about it, your eye is circular. If it was flat like a square (not a cube)you would probably only be able to see in 2-D. With the 3-D movies that come out at you, they aren't 2-D anymore because the image is not displayed on a flat surface (the tv screen). Also, 3-D images have length, width, and height (hence the name 3-dimensional).

yeah i have this model too and i may say Vuzix made a really good job, well im a very detail oriented person and i can see the difference right away. the crisp of the images, the enhanced sound.. it's truly amazing, though i've seen this iTheater in a lot of forums which has a lot of positive response, and saw a good dealer too. if im not mistaken its Twift.com

will try to get one and update you guys about this. ciao.

Did you pick , or are you planning to get NVIDIA's 3d glasses? They seem to be about the best thing going in this category now, from what I've read.

Looking back, I was somewhat disappointed with the VR920 glasses. For having a pair to use whenever I want, I really haven't used them at all, which should say a lot.
