Kasparov plays Chess with X3D 3D Glasses against Fritz

X3D found a great way to get publicity for their X3D wireless 3D Glasses.

Kasparov will play against Fritz wearing X3D wireless shutter glasses and a virtual 3D chessboard. X3D Fritz team said the glasses will have the effect of making the board's image realistic, floating in front of him, but Kasparov will have to adjust to not being able to reach out, touch the pieces and move them.
The X3D Fritz program can consider about 3 million chess positions per second, and would likely beat 99.9 percent of human competition, said John Fernandez, chess consultant with X3D Technologies Corp.
Kasparov tied his last, six-game match against a program, the Israeli-designed world computer chess champion Deep Junior, in New York in February.

Azerbaijan-born Kasparov is considered by chess experts to be the greatest player in the history of the ancient game. He is still ranked No. 1 ahead of world champion Vladimir Kramnik of Russia by the International Chess Federation, known by its French acronym FIDE. (more details on Reuters)
