Wiimote Desktop VR/Head Tracking / Re: Single camera vs 2 eyes

Remember that this is only a tracking device that is independent of the display.

I don't see anything that would prevent current stereographic techniques to be used with this, such as lcd shutter glasses or even red/green lens techniques.

In fact, the use of shutter glasses would fit right in with the mounted IR lights.

This method of tracking is so simple, yet amazing, I cannot see why this could not be used in current games today, in both mono and stereo implementations (given enough refresh ability).  3dstereo.com has multiple shutter glasses for sale (as an example source) for ~$50-100.

I suspect that a cheap $5-10 IR glasses version would be best for the masses right now, but for CRT/high end LCD type PC users full stereographic IR tracking VR is well within reach.  In fact, it's lying there just begging to be used.
