One of those things that looks good, but when you actually get it you are severely disappointed

That's pretty cool Technology. I like it.

But... I can foresee one major issue with the constant use of those, don't you think that it would be very tuff on the eyes after awhile? I spend close to 8-12 hours a day infront of a monitor.. my eyes are always bothering me... Imagine a visor that is 1" from your eyes?
You'd probably go blind in a few months...

I don't know? Someone should ask an eye doctor??

Maximum PC Reviewed it. They said it was good. But you MUST have an nVidia card to use it. And you can't use SLI. And after a while, it starts to hurt wearing it. And worst of all. expensive.
