    Well, kind of goggles: http://www.archos.com/corporate/press/p ... 141016.pdf

    If you ask me, it will be a cheap entry to try out FPV HUD like experience. You hook up your phone to it and there you go. It will be probably a bit heavy and not the most comfortable thing in the world, but at the cost of some phone shades, it will be very interesting indeed. Anything that makes a better visual than a phone in the sun is great.

    Now only wait and see :)

    The viewer app has to be modified to provide two images. One for each eye.

    I recall where in the 80's there was a Superbowl Coca-cola commercial that used a 3D phenomenon where if you decrease the luminance of one eye's vision, you will see 3D from motion in the video. They distributed millions of the cardboard glasses with a clear plastic film over one eye and an ND1 over the other.

    You can try it yourself with an old pair of sunglasses. Knock out one of the lenses then watch some video with motion. (Or hold an ND1 filter over one eye). Your brain will interpret the difference as depth. So, if someone makes a viewer app for this, it would be cool to see if lowering the luma of one image would produce the same depth phenomenon.

    indeed, the goggles need a side by side video format, currently the dji app does not support this.
