Nvidia Corp. announced this week its new version of stereo-3D (S3D) glasses kit designed for its proprietary 3D Vision technology and supporting devices. The new glasses became 25% more affordable, but improved battery life. The company hopes that this will help to drive popularity of stereo-3D in general and 3D Vision in particular.

The new Nvidia 3D Vision kit, which includes a pair of stereo-3D glasses (with IR receiver) and an IR emitter now costs $149, which is down $50 from its original price. The S3D glasses provide 50% longer battery life from a single charge, 60 hours compared with 40 hours before. In addition, Nvidia also lowered the price of extra wireless glasses to $119, which allows to share stereo-3D content with others.

In order to take advantage of Nvidia 3D Vision, which allows to build a stereo-3D-supporting gaming or multimedia system, one should not only acquire Nvidia-proprietary S3D glasses, but also a display or an HDTV certified for usage with Nvidia 3D Vision hardware and of course an appropriate high-performance GeForce graphics card. At present there is a significant number of full-HD displays and HDTVs supporting the 3D Vision technology.

Nvidia hopes that lower priced S3D glasses with longer battery life as well as generally widened 3D Vision eco-system will help this technology to become a major standard for gamers. While hardcore enthusiast gamers are likely to adopt 3D Vision technology, the mainstream PC gamers are more likely to prefer a single S3D standard for both ATI Radeon and Nvidia GeForce platforms.

What is "3D Vision eco-system." I just bought the glasses kit. Came in last Friday from Amazon. They are the older, 40 hour version. Figures.

nah, I'd rather wait for autostereoscopic devices... it shouldn't be that long... since it's being shown now...
