I stumbled upon this on ebay recently, I can remember using oversized 90s headsets in the arcades allways wanted to try out one of these, unfortunatly a bit steep for me.

I vaguely recall seeing it featured alongside MechWarrior 2 and the S3 ViRGE in old advertisements,

Has anyone had the chance to use one of these headsets?

Any Youtube video etc showing its functionality?

Thanks

The shutter glasses approach wasn't that bad imho... but it's a far cry from what one would call "VR". Basically, gives a bit of depth to the image on your monitor, but no more than that. Like all those 3D TVs from the fad ~10(?) years ago did.

The serial number on the sticker on the graphics cards seem to be not identical.

Descent 2 with [...] 1990's VR must be a trip

Forte VFX-1 on head, Space Orb 360 in hand...

edit: Can't forget the Aura InterActor on the back. I hear this one's recently been making a comeback too, in the form of underseat bass thumpers?

I have miroMEDIA Voodo2 that supports these 3D shutter-glasses. For obvious financial reasons I hardly ever find out if it really works with them.
