Just asking in case anyone's familiar with the topic.

You know how cinemas everywhere show movies in 3d all the time? When I go to those flicks I don't see any difference to the 2D versions. Apparently when you have lazy eye as a kid it often happens that one eye is not perfectly aligned with the other, the brain can't overlap the two images and the input from one eye is ignored.

Up to very recently the established scientific view was that loss of 3d vision cannot be reversed in adults. However, there have been reports of adults regaining 3d vision, sometimes after viewing 3d movies, sometimes after "vision therapy" (a collection of eye exercises sold to solve all sorts of ailments). This lead to renewed interest in the topic and there are a bunch of experiments, especially involging video games that try to force both eyes to cooperate by showing different information through VR glasses.

Now the question is, where do I get my hands on one of those videogames and how do I set up a cheap do-it-yourself system for training my eyes to get along?

It sounds like your looking for a oculus rift but that is not the kind of set up you get at a cinema. Years ago I bought a set of the e-dimesional 3-d glasses that had the ability to strenghten or weaken the effect. They were shutter glasses and that is probably more of what you need but again I do not know the process that the scientists are using so it is all just a wild stab in the dark.

As for the actual video games well the e-dimesional glasses worked post process so pretty much any game couls be used however it would have to be able to run at 60 fps (30 per eye) so The latest cod on a 5 year old laptop would be out of the question.

[COLOR=Blue]To get that 3d effect, you need to use those stupid paper glasses.

I have a pair of those e-Dimensional efforts on the strength of Pro-Filer's marketing campaign and I have to admit they weren't too bad back in the day. They wouldn't work now though. Plus they only worked with CRT monitors.

That being said they seem to be selling an LCD version now.

But the wider question of how you actually retrain your brain to recognise 3D, regardless of method (Oculus, 3DTV or eDimensional glasses), I don't know.
