Need to turn a flat image into 3D? Then you’re gonna have to drop just under $4 grand for a Planar Systems monitor. It is actually 2 monitors placed together at a 110 degree angle with a piece of polarized glass. The user must also wear a pair of special glasses to see the image.

According to its manufacture the images are not technically 3D, but give the appearance that they are, and help the eye better understand what its looking at.

Sharp also has a 3D monitor that doesn’t require glasses, but does require the user to position their head in a certain place to view the image – the glasses provide the user with great viewing freedom.

Apparently some people get sick from the imaging as it coordinated between the left and right eye. There are reports of headaches and sickness, while some have used the system all day without any side affects.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
