Volfoni SmartCrystal Pro 3D Polarizer
For years now, some of our readers have been asking about polarized 3D. Finally, we have something to tell them.
Our review of the Volfoni SmartCrystal Pro has just been posted. The SmartCrystal Pro is a switching polarizer designed to work with any 3D-capable DLP projector, effectively converting your active shutter glasses system into a polarized system.
If you're interested in the differences between these types of 3D, our 3D Renaissance article from 2010 enumerates the differences between types of 3D.
