New $99 software that converts standard two-dimensional video images into three-dimensional viewing in real time has been unveiled.
The PC-based system requires users to wear special glasses. The technology creates the illusion of depth by generating two images out of one, each tilted and distorted to generate the illusion of depth when combined.
A chip for TV sets is expected in 2003.
