I saved my glasses from "Avatar" and was wondering if I can use them to view 3-D stuff (games, videos, pics) on the Internet. I goggled but could not turn up anything. Does anyone know of any websites where I can view honest-to-goodness 3D with the glasses?

Won't work. The filters are polarized. Even the color code glasses wouldn't work. For tv and the internet you have the choice of anaglyph (red/cyan) glasses or shutter glasses - which require a hardware adapter connected to the the computer or tv.

Great! So I've been lugging these things around for nothing. Thanks for the heads up. Now I can "recycle" them.
