Marcus Hutter and Stephen Gould will demonstrate their $10 Virtual 
Reality Glasses at the Australian National University in Canberra, 4pm, 
13 February 2014: http://cecs.anu.edu.au/seminars/more/SID/3444

The DIY 3D Virtual Reality Glasses are built using a smart phone: 

This is being promoted as a project for students: 

It occurs to me that this is something which should work well with one 
of the new smart phones with a curved screen. The case to hold the phone 
could be manufactured with a 3D printer and the project crowd-funded.


     3D television and 3D cinema are becoming wide-spread, but 3D 
Virtual Reality goggles (or glasses), despite being a many decades old 
idea, are just receiving increased attention. The few commercial devices 
available don't sell well, in parts due to price, but a cheap 
alternative has emerged: A modern SmartPhone, two lenses for under 10$ 
and some cardboard and glue is all you need to build your own 3D-VR goggles.

     Marcus will bring his to the seminar for you to try out, and will 
share his experience in building and using them. Stephen will discuss 
potential computer vision applications and student projects. ...
