3D gaming visual headset still doesn't exist?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to search the net for it, but all I come up with is that stupid Nvidia 3d vision stuff.

With the advances in OLED screens, and the miniturization of screens on mobile phones with increased resolutions, how has there not been a company that has come out with a fully functional 3D display headset. One that correctly adapted for bi-ocular vision?

I know I don't understand the background work that goes into making something like this (such as programming a central viewing location and then have two cameras set up on either side of it and then displaying a single camera to a single display for 1 eye).

But it seems simple enough.

You have a headset, with two small OLED screens, each OLED is separated from the other so that only 1 eye can see 1 OLED screen each. You make each screen display an image from the perspective of a camera either slightly to the right or to the left of the central viewing location. The result so be a fully 3-dimensional image when percieved by the human brain, right? I know the limitation a few years ago was that the screens had to be small, so the resolution was limited, surely with advances in new display technology someone can come up with an affordable solution.

It's funny I was thinking this exact same thing yesterday when reading threads about tri monitor setups. I would never go tri monitor because of two main reasons. People say you don't notice the bezels, but I do. Secondly, the main screen is generally smaller than you would have if you only had 1 larger screen, so you see less/smaller picture of the important stuff.

I remember those stupid little picturegraph or w/e things as a kid where they had those circular slides that you click through and hold up to a light. They were mildly 3D too because of the stereoscopic vision.

When I was thinking about the idea of a visual headset I came to the realization that the size of the picture (even being up close to your face) would be much smaller than your average monitor 2-3 feet away. Unless the headset screen itself were pretty big, but then it would be heavy and probably be uncomfortable.
