    Re: HP reveals the Zvr Virtual Reality display

    Interesting.... interesting...

    I'm a big fan of 3D stuff anyway, so this is all good news as far as I'm concerned.
    They mention "passive 3D glasses", but don't seem to specify whether these are polarised or linear... or even the funky new colour wavelength ones, which would probably also work for a wider range of those with the sort of visual anomalies that usually exclude them from the more common 3D technologies.

    IIRC, the Occulus Rift can do 3D, can't it?

    Whilst I have no problem putting on specs to view my 3D (I already don headphones for the fancy audio), I'm looking forward to the day when we get glasses-free 360ยบ holographic displays where you can choose your viewing angle in movies and games!!

    Re: HP reveals the Zvr Virtual Reality display

    This isnt virtual reality... this is simply augmented display surely? Its a standard 3d display with head tracking, it even uses the passive or active glasses.

    Ttaskmaster you're correct the Oculus Rift does 3d however it is totally different in regards to this as it is true 3d i.e this looks exactly like the real world 1 image in each eye.

    VR is with the Oculus Rift headset as this is on your face and for Vr a display mounted to your face is a must unfortunately... it is epic though

    Curved monitors don't tend to be very useful as televisions or large screens I hear because you have to be located in a very precise location to achieve the full effect - something that a sofa or couch would not allow multiple people to do a the same time.

    Assuming this monitor does it the same way as properly-filmed 3D movies, then this will also be a slightly different image in each eye. They're just projected from the one screen and the glasses filter the appropriate image to the relevant eye.
    The principles and concepts remain the same as the 1950s, because the Mk I Eyeball has not changed.

    You are correct that VR generally means the full-surround visual experience, rather than just the on-screen Comin' At Ya pop-out effect, which this monitor does not offer.
