    Really? I thought this wasn't actually to do with a 2 image thing allowing for depth but more of a perspective 3D thing (I may be totally wrong, I haven't watched it with one eye closed yet, I'll do that now).

    Regardless, I think this is the sort of 3 D that will catch on for PCs, (or at least I hope) because it's backwards compatible and fairly cheap to create (compared to other 3D solutions). The only downside is that it's 1 person only... but that's why it's called a Personal Computer (PC).

    Update: I just watched it with one eye and I could see the 3D but it may be boast because I know what to expect, I can certainly see the difference between the non tracking and the tracking image.

    The only real way to find out is for someone with partial site to give it a go and see if it works on them.

    As far as I know it will not work with one eye, because the head tracking just tracks your eyes and projects a slightly different image to each. We cannot get full 3D with one eye, and it will not work with just one. Also, it has now been made 2D for YouTube, and so watching it with one eye closed will prove absolutely nothing. The whole point of 3D, stereoscopic glasses or eye tracking is that we see a slightly different image with each eye, and if done well, will create a realistic effect.

    severedsolo is right.
    Here's a 3d test with one eye:

    Find two pens/pencils.
    Hold the ends so the nibs are pointing towards eachother.
    Close one eye, and try and make the nibs touch.
    Weird, eh?
    Now try it with 2 eyes. You'll see its a lot easier to interpret your movements in a 3d environment

    Yeah I know, its rather clever (and confusing, it give me a headache ).

    Although it may not look as good with only eye, head tracking 3D doesn't rely on 2 interpreted images of the same thing, it relies on your perspective.

    I admit it may not look like true 3D with no depth perception involved but it would certainly looks more adaptive/different with partial site compared to a standard 2 D display.

    We really just need someone to test this and see if it works with partial site or not. That will sort this out.
