project: 3D glasses for my SGI

Ever since I got myself an Octane, I’ve got a renewed interest in everything Silicon Graphics. And with that, my old (imaginary) list of things-to-do with such a machine has been dusted off too. One of those things was making some 3D shutter glasses (cheap). And even though I’m tinkering with SGIs for years already, I never took the time to build some stereographic glasses myself, a project which has been online for years already and I’ve been wanting to do ever since I read it. And now it was time to actually make my own pair. ^_^

When you’re into the SGI hobbyist scene, you know this is possible for a long time already, there’s nothing new here. The reason that I post this is that I hope to inspire some people to grab a SGI cheap somewhere and tinker around with it.

    i bought 2 iris indigos for $20 long time ago but they had no hard drives or keyboard, so all they do is make the boot noise, and show that the clock is wrong.

    gave one to a friend, and kept the elan one.
