Second Life in 3D with 3D Vision Glasses

San Francisco-based virtual worlds developer David Rowe has released a 3D viewer for OpenSim and Second Life, based on the Firestorm Viewer. The CtrlAltStudio Viewer works in conjunction with active shutter glasses and high-end graphics cards to create a 3D effect.

“With the CtrlAltStudio Viewer, the display effect is that the virtual world appears partly in front of and partly — mostly — behind your computer screen,” David Rowe told Hypergrid Business. “Things like chat windows, dialogue boxes, and the minimap appear as normal at screen depth and you use them as normal. The user interface is not changed. However, your avatar and those of others plus the 3D world or Second Life appear to exist in a 3D space that extends from a bit in front of to some way behind your screen. I find it quite compelling.”

One recommended setup is the NVIDIA GeForce Graphics card and the NVIDIA 3D Vision system.
