SMI Eye-tracking 3D Glasses use cameras to adjust your perspective


It’s a pity we can’t notice any of the hidden dimensions we always read about in science books for dummies. Still, I guess we should be happy with what we’ve got, particularly in the burgeoning field of 3D-related paraphernalia. We already have 3D televisions, dedicated 3D video game consoles and, of course, tons and tons of 3D movies. We also have glasses to look at all of this 3D stuff. Many companies have been trying to up the tech ante on these bad boys from the red and blue hues we all grew up with. Guess what? They are succeeding.

A company called SensoMotoric Instruments (SMI) is prepping a brand new pair of eye-tracking 3D glasses that uses the magic of cameras to adjust your perspective. The cameras are mounted on the rim, thus giving you a host of new ways at looking at what you are looking at. Pretty cool right? It uses ActiveEye Technology from Volfoni and it just might be the coolest thing to happen to the third dimension since blue aliens helped protect their planet or something.

Of course, this is quite a rig and it is still in the concept stages. No pricing or availability has been announced but with all of this tech at the helm one could assume the asking price would be fairly hefty. We’ll let you know when we know more. In the meantime, check out this video of the specs in action and prepare to be amazed.
