Oculus Rift Immersive 3D Headset

The Oculus Rift VR Headset is the cutting edge of virtual reality for video games. It is developed with funding from Kicktarter.

The virtual reality headset is designed specifically for video games, featuring stereoscopic 3D and a wide 110 degree field of view. Existing headset displays typically offer a 40 degree field of view, replicating a screen in front of the user. A 110 degree view gives the appearance of surrounding the user's natural field of view. It accomplishes the wide view through two screens, a 640x800 display for each eye, that combine for the illusion of a panoramic 1280x800 display. The Oculus Rift also features low latency head tracking so that what appears on the display mimics the motions of the head with near 1:1 accuracy.

Panasonic 3D Medical Monitor with Unpronounceable Name

Panasonic (Japan) today announced a new 3D medical-grade 32" class monitor named EJ-MDA32U-K (not a gift for their salesmen, that name!). The new 3D monitor is fully compliant with medical equipment standards, delivers exceptional 2D and stereoscopic 3D image quality and can display multiple images from various sources at once. The new monitor uses passive circular polarized technology (i.e. sudh as RealD ones), so it can be used with cheap throw-away 3D glasses. Resolution is 1920x1080 pixels.

"To improve patient outcomes, there is an ever increasing reliance on technology in the surgical suite," said Scott Thie, Director, Healthcare, Panasonic System Communications Company of North America. "Although this technology has many benefits, it can also create a cluttered environment. The EJ-MDA32U-K helps to improve the surgical experience by having a large screen, HD image that can be clearly viewed by all clinicians, while also providing flexibility that helps to reduce clutter. By allowing up to three images to be displayed on the screen at once - from multiple input sources - and by delivering high quality 3D and 2D HD images, we offer a single device that addresses multiple needs in the surgical suite."
