RealD Glasses/ Beowulf

I just saw Beowulf in 3D and was pretty amazed! I still have my RealD glasses and was wondering if there is any content on the net I can watch on my computer in 3D with my glasses?

PS> my only problem with Beowulf (which was fairly significant to be honest) was that on objects which were supposed to be very close to the viewer (tree branches, spears pointing at camera, etc), a fair amount of ghosting occured, and motion was very stuttery. This just me?

Reald uses standard polarized glasses so they will only work with polarized sources and a silver screen. No such luck with watching on your computer screen.

circular polarized glasses

The Real-D system uses circular polarized glasses, which usually require a circular polarized projection system and a silver screen.

However, there is another option if you really want to use your Real-D glasses:

This Arisawa display uses the same light technology as Real-D and I have heard that the Real-D passive glasses work on this display. Not bad for US$2K.
