3D in the 3D Internet

If you're browsing the 3D Internet in 3D, is it a 6D or a 9D experience? What about if you're browsing the 3D Internet in 3D in a CAVE where you're surrounded from at least 3 directions with walls full of graphics, 9D or 27D?

Ok, back to business. Philosophy is best left to philosophers, I was just momentarily carried away when I saw the latest Naali development version running with anaglyphic stereoscopic rendering. If you have red/green glasses, you can check out the result from the attached screenshots.

On another note we've also been working on CAVE rendering. Tests with two screens have been pretty promising, now we're waiting for an adapter to be shipped from Germany so that we can test with three.

From the previous posts you've already seen how Naali can be run on a mobile device and I have to admit that it has been fascinating to see the development in the other end of the computer power spectrum as well. Now it's possible to pick up Naali and go if you have a high-end mobile phone and if you get your hands on a CAVE system (they're not very easy to come by), you will have a very powerful immersive experience.

The 3D rendering option will be released in the next binary (0.3.1) at the end of this month, the code is of course already available.

Any possibilities for active viewer technologies?

Since the 3D made it´s kind of breakthrough in consumer electronics, there are plenty of TV-displays with integrated stereo emitters providing sync signal for the shutter glasses.
