On the forth of January 2011 Nvidia revealed a new Beta driver, which was quite a surprise for me. I’ve been looking for this driver since it was first announced in November 2009. It should bring the capability to support 3D Vision in a windowed mode. So e.g. Google Earth and other windowed application could be used. Periodically I was seeking the web for new rumors or news, but gave up in some point in time last year. But now: Bam! Here it is. And it gets even better. The new driver comes with a new 3D Portal (3dvisionlive.com), which offers a 3D picture and Video gallery – all in a browser windows – just great.

Monsters vs Aliens was the first movie I’ve seen at TPB, which was ready for Nvidia’s 3D Vision glasses. But hardly anybody took notice of it, because the first comment was quite devastating, but very precise though. The file description itself laconically states: “3D” – that’s all. The subs were hardcoded on the left eye, the video was out of sync and the language was Russian. Continue reading “Avatar 3D For Nvidia's 3D Vision Glasses”
I’ve bought a bunch of Elsa 3D Revelator Shutter Glasses at eBay for a few bucks a few years ago, and was quite happy with them, because almost all of them were working flawlessly. Continue reading “Reanimating Elsa 3D Revelator Glasses”
[Update] Google Earth is now supported by Nvidia 3D Vision [/Update]
Nvidia’s 3D Vision shutter glasses are awesome, no doubt about it, BUT…
I’ve managed to control my negative emotions regarding the lack of driver support for my old Elsa 3D Revelator glasses. It’s also OK that the prize for the new 3D Vision glasses is pretty high. I think, as long as the support will last longer than it did for the 3D Revelator glasses, the prize will be fine for me, too. Continue reading “Nvidia 3D Vision – Missing Application Support”
I was utterly psyched when I read the first time about the new firmware version for the Fujifilm Real 3D W1 streoscopic cam.
I’ve read on several sites, the new version enables the cam to shoot at a aspect ratio of 1.677, what means it’s the generic HDTV aspect ratio. Continue reading “First impression of the new Fujifilm Real 3D W1 2.0 Firmware Version”
I’m quite interested in the new FujiFilm Real 3D W1 cam. It’s the first of its kind. She makes real 3D images (side-by-side), and do also movies at 640×480.
A lot has been written, and there quite a lot reviews about it. Continue reading “Sample Pictures of the new FujiFilm Real 3D W1 Cam.”
Even the brand new GPU-z tool, available in version 0.3.8 (as of 1st December, 2009) doesn’t show a graph on my Windows 7 x64. See picture to the right.

Did you ever ask yourself how the 3D buildings in GoogleEarth are made? It’s done with Google’s free tool SketchUp. It’s an easy to use ( all is easy, if you know how it works 😉 ) 3D modeling software. You can learn it in a few hours and design complex buildings. Just leave the Window “Instructor” open (get it with Menu–>Window–>Instructor), and it shows you for every tool how it can be used. This helps enormously. Continue reading “SketchUp 7 on Linux”
Over the last view weeks I’ve read a view reviews about Nvidia’s new 3D shutter glasses – the Nvidia 3D Vision. I also wrote a short Blog article about it, and about the differences to the old ELSA 3D Revelator shutter glasses. I’ve pointed out, why their new (still to be published?) stereo driver very likely won’t be compatible to the old 3D Revelator.
I haven’t looked for quite a while for anything regarding 3D shutter glasses, so one can say I’m pretty much out of this business. Continue reading “3D Revelator reloaded”
Sure, it’s an odd title, because Elsa 3D Revelator shutter glasses have been released 1999 and aren’t available anymore.
Well – at eBay they are.
Just imagine to use this new 3D webcam (Minoru) with Skype and see your partner on the other side in 3D.
I’ve read a lot about Nvidia’s new shutter glasses, the GeForce 3D Vision. And my first question was: Hey – can I use my old Elsa 3D Revelator shutter glasses with the new Nvidia driver on my Windows XP installation? Continue reading “GeForce 3D Vision vs. Elsa 3D Revelator shutter glasses”
