3D and Your Home PC
3D computer monitors and laptops are also capable of rendering superior 3D quality. High resolution 3D monitors are used in many applications, including medical, scientific, video-editing and manufacturing markets, as well as relaxation applications such as gaming, 3D photography, video and program-viewing.
The 3rd dimension can be added to 3D monitors the same way it is in 3D HDTV - with active shutter or passive polarizing technology and the viewer(s) would wear the appropriate 3D eyewear. Or, because of its smaller size, higher resolution, and its single-user-structure, some monitors are autostereo - or glasses-free .
In the home, apartment, or dorm room, 3D monitors enable a very immersive gaming experience. leading to this being a leading market for 3D monitors. Short of the 'Holodeck', it gives the real sense of being in the action and game-designers are working with that in mind.
High performance gaming systems are equipped with a 3D-compatible video card, active shutter glasses and a fast 3D monitor. Slightly less powerful systems come are also available and no less the fun. Monitors are available in passive, active-shutter and glasses-free technologies.
