This is how the final 3D Vision Discover anaglyph glasses should look like and from what we can see they won’t be much different than the normal paper anaglyph glasses, besides being black and Nvidia branded. This teaser picture is coming from Andrew Fear, the product manager for 3D Vision at Nvidia (again thanks to twitter), so it should be the real thing. Still no information how and when we will be able to get the 3D Vision Discover glasses to actually compare them to a pair of normal paper anaglyph glasses and see if there is any difference or not. Meanwhile don’t forget that 3D Vision drivers come with a free anaglyph mode (3D Vision Discover) that is usable even with normal paper anaglyph glasses so if you have any of these lying around you should check it out…

Nvidia 3D Vision Discover Glasses

Lately there is some talk about Nvidia releasing new 3D glasses called 3D Vision Discover Glasses, but that matter seems to need a bit of clarification. These new 3D glasses are not going to be a replacement for the shutter glasses in the GeForce 3D Vision kit, but something completely different. And although there is already some information or maybe just rumors that Nvidia is preparing a second generation LC-shutter glasses for an update to the existing GeForce 3D Vision the 3D Vision Discover Glasses are not going to do that! Instead Nvidia’s 3D Vision Discover Glasses are going to be a custom-designed, specialized anaglyph (red/blue) glasses that will work with the existing 3D Vision drivers…

With the 3D Vision Discover Glasses, 3D Vision’s drivers and a nVidia-based graphics gard you’ll be able to achieve nice view of 3D Stereo in a lot of games relying on anaglyph technology for depth reproduction. And although the results won’t be as good as with the specialized 3D Vision glasses and a compatible monitor, you’ll still be able to achieve pretty good depth perception on your normal monitor. This means you won’t have to pay for a high-end video card, specialized glasses or even a high refresh rate display, because they are not needed for anaglyph 3D Stereo. Nvidia says it’s 3D Vision Discover glasses will be bundled with selected GeForce graphics cards starting in summer 2009, but there is still not a lot of information about that. You can subscribe to the special newsletter they prepared in order to receive more news when the glasses become available. The thing is that you may already be ready for enjoying 3D Stereo in games if you already own some paper anagyph glasses bought with some 3D DVD movie. Even if you don’t have them you can buy a pair of paper anaglyph glasses very cheap or go for more advanced plastic ones for better results. I personally would recommend anachrome anaglyph glasses as I had best results with them so far, but you are welcome to try any other or just wait for more information from Nvidia…

Either way, I’ll soon be doing some tests with different anaglyph glasses I currently own, until there is more info available for nVidia’s optimized anaglyph glasses, so expect more on the topic very soon… ;)
