I was browsing youtube and I found this crazy video of half life 2 being played on a 3d monitor. It's from some company named spatialView. It looks pretty sweet how you can see around corners and its supposed to be 3d according to their website. Does anyone know anything more about this technology? Here's the video link...

Neat concept, but doesn't seem to be practical to me. After all, your still looking at a two dimentional picture. I also read about a company that sells a film material you can buy to put over your existing monitor or television screen to give it that 3D appearance as well.

i dunno, from what i've read, it seems as though you're looking at a 3D picture. Like each eye sees a different view like in real life. I guess they can't show that with a youtube vid though. Looks like cool stuff...i want one. On their web page I found a gaming bundle: http://www.spatialview.com/products.cfm?cat=24&id=234

that display looks sweet and it's a little cheaper too, but i just read that it requires a dual output video card and you need to wear glasses. This spatialView one doesn't seem to need glasses.
