The video version of the i-glasses is being used by thousands of dentists all over the world as a dental distraction device. Distracting the patient keeps them calm, and makes them want to come back. This is the device that patients ask for by name.

Research published in JADA (Journal of the American Dental Association) showed that use of a headset during dental treatment was 'beneficial in the reduction of fear, pain and procedure time'.

While the Video version does not include a head tracker, the PC version does. Its modular design means that you can always get the tracking system later.

Here are some games and applications that support the i-glasses, tracking software and utilities and drivers for existing games, including the Win95 DirectInput drivers!!.
The list of supported software is not expected to grow substantially due to the lack of support and drivers, though this may change in the future.

If you are a developer and looking to produce software for the i-O Display Systems i-glasses!, here is the i-glasses! Software Development Kit (SDK) (2.5Mb) and the SDK documentation.
