3D goggles

A headset that renders 3D images generated within the device. 3D goggles differ from "3D glasses." 3D goggles are immersive virtual reality headsets that render the content, whereas 3D glasses are eyeglasses that filter stereo frames coming from a 3D movie theater screen, 3D computer game or 3D TV into the user's left and right eyes. For more information, see VR headset, 3D glasses and virtual reality.
