    That's awesome. I can dab some IR ink around my eyes, set up a PC with my old WiiMote that's been sitting on the shelf, and have a makeshift 3D display. Amazing.

    So, where is the games for this device and where can I buy this device on a market.

  19. Francisco Gutierrez September 22, 2017 at 4:22 am

    Hi! I am using this in my classroom and it works quite well, but it is fairly annoying the need of calibrating every single time I turn on the PC, even after shutting and openning up (I have a laptop in my classroom). Anyone knows if there is any way for saving the calibration so I don't have to set it again and again? Thanks in advance. Cheers!

    That's an interesting kind of passive 3D.

  34. jehsiman September 22, 2017 at 4:22 am

    I used to attend a high school in a very low- income area and of course; we couldn't afford the interactive smart boards which basically every other school had at least a few of. My math teacher who was so passionate about education and technology adopted this system of a budget interactive whiteboard to make her teaching more visual and enhancing and seeing this video, I feel so grateful for some reason. Great work Johnny! Your work really did enable less advantaged people to maintain the technological advancements that everyone else was achieving.

  35. Liam Nebe September 22, 2017 at 4:22 am
