What do you think?

It would be interesting to see how it works with a flight sim with a fully 3D cockpit. I tried this out at the NCIX store for a few minutes, it looked pretty great actually.

Just remember, you will need a monitor capable of 120hz refresh rate.

also be warned ... Il2 is notoriously hard to get working with nvidia's 3D drivers

That was true with the old 3d drivers, that may not be the case anymore as this is an entirely new system with specific active shutter glasses.

Which pretty much leaves out many LCDs (at least mine). I dont know about these but most reviews I have read about 3d glasses claim they tend to cause dizziness and make you nauseous. That is a big turn off for me.

S!

These are something completely new. They were announced at the CES show in Jan of this year. They use an nvidia graphics card, one of the new 120hz LCD monitors, and special lcd shutter glasses that are hooked wirelessly to an infrared transmitter that sits on top of the monitor. The 120hz monitor projects 60hz for each eye alternating while the shutter glasses (timed perfectly to the video output) hide the opposite eyes view and gives a great, headache free, 3d effect.

Even discounting the headaches... from Forgotten Battles on IL-2 has issues with 3-D. The original worked ok but all sorts of weird stuff happens with 3D and FB. Ground objects dont sit right....look like they float, that sort of thing.
Some of the cockpits looked good though but not good enough to cost a migrain headache http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
