Nothing’s worse than having to wear 3D glasses over regular glasses, except maybe shocking yourself to simulate the glasses shutter effect.
Filmmaker Francois Vogel demonstrates this Flintstones technology on Youtube by attaching wireless electrodes to his temples, which sync his blinking to a 120Hz monitor!
If replacing clunky glasses with temple tasers doesn’t sound like an improvement in comfort, don’t worry. It’s fake. While the electric shocks have no problem putting his eyelids into overdrive, there’s hardly any movement in the rest of his face.
Fortunately, glasses-free technology does exist. It’s called autostereoscopy and it works at the source by aligning one set of pixels to show to one eye and the other set to the other eye. Unfortunately, it’s much more expensive than traditional 3D displays (for now).
