If 3D TV failed because people did not want to wear 3D glasses (often called 3D Goggles by the media), how will VR with its VR helmets be a long term mass market item?

#ELSEWHERE introduces #3D viewing system based on iPhone and viewing lenses

It’s a $50 setup that says it dynamically converts any image or video screen into 3D, doing a 2D to 3D conversion. It works in conjunction with an iOS app. Looks like it uses the iPhone camera to collect images, the app to do a 2D to 3D conversion into side-by-side viewing, and then uses the “3D viewer” to enable parallel view on the Phone screen’s side by side image. I think.

Parallel viewing glasses is not new. But using an iPhone camera to record 2D and then converting in real time to 3D is a neat trick. Provided you want to watch it on your iPhone. Photo, below, form the Elsewhere web site:
