ViewSonic gives you video games (and a projector) in 3D

ViewSonic gives you video games (and a projector) in 3D

Last night, I experienced the thrill of the BCS Championship Live in 3D, and today, I got to play video games in 3D for the first time at ViewSonic’s display in the Bellagio. Yeah, there’s never a dull moment at CES.

Viewsonic showed off not one, but two 3D products with the VX2265WM desktop LCD monitor and the PJD6220-3D lightweight portable projector. Of course, to see the 3-D effect, I had to wear the glasses. They were not the old-school red and blue ones, but NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision glasses.

Somehow, these glasses worked in unison with a special light emitter to create the 3-D effect that we all know and love, and I played a game of Tomb Raider: Underworld that was like no other. Just to let you know, the 3-D glasses have to be charged with a mini-USB cable, but they are good for 40-50 hours of use.
