Californian company nVIDIA has unveiled their latest 3D Vision 2 glasses which provide better immersion into video games and greater user comfort compared to the first generation.
In their second version, nVIDIA’s 3D Vision glasses benefit from an internally developed technology going by the name LightBoost which allows for twice as much light compared to the previous generation.
They also use glasses that are 20% bigger, providing a visualisation field that is slightly larger than before which also has better lighting.
The glasses benefit from more flexible materials and a thinner design which provide greater comfort. This thinness allows for easier use with audio headsets.

The kit comes with a USB infrared sensor and the glasses for $149, while the glasses alone (for those that already have a 3D Ready screen with integrated sensor) will cost $99.
At this time, more than 600 video games, including Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Crysis 2, Duke Nukem Forever and Just Cause 2, are compatible with nVIDIA’s 3D Vision technology.
