Ridge Racer 7 gets a 3D remix

No, we don't mean the graphics are 3D. We mean the game displays in 3D. Just like all those early 90's rides at Disneyland. If you think this is a really crazy idea, you may be right. Rumors abound that movie theaters are going to adopt new 3D technology over the next decade to "enhance" our movie experiences and attempt to justify raising ticket prices again, but this Ridge Racer 7 remix into the third dimension is particularly interesting.

This idea takes the console version of the title, tosses it back into arcades and displays it on a special television that requires you to wear special 3D shades to have the images pop out at you -- no, they aren't cardboard green and red glasses, rather, a single shade that should be less embarrassing. To outsiders, the screen will simply look a little blurry. It's a neat idea, but we aren't sure if it will catch on outside of a select few arcades in Tokyo.

4. I don't know, I watched that underwater sea thing at Imax with those goggles, it was pretty amazing, I think this could be quite impressive if done well... don't live in Japan so I'll never know.
