Elsa claims to have created the first 3D gaming glasses with a spatial awareness that is similar to holography.
The Elsa 3D 'Revelator' glasses supply each eye with a slightly different perspective in rapid succession, alternating at 120 times per second. The fast changing image is merged by the human brain to form a 'truly spatial' image, claims Elsa.
The signal to the 3D Shutter glasses is via an infrared unit that sits on top of the PC.
Up to eight sets of glasses can be used in a single games session.
"We are quite sure 3D Revelator will soon be just as indispensable as the game pad or joystick to passionate games players", said Marion Wessler, marketing director at Elsa AG.
The Revelator glasses are priced at £54.99 and will be available by mail order and through high street stores from the end of this month. They will work with most graphics cards, although Elsa will only support its own cards which are priced from £100. A Pentium II or AMD K6-2 processor is required.
