Cool score.  Do you intend to use them on an SGI?

Err, why would he walk into things?  I believe the set I used default to
clear when they weren't in use, so it would be just like wearing
extremely light (tinting, not weight) sun glasses.

There are some applications that support these out of box, but I'm
having trouble thinking what they might be, other than probably Iris
Exploreer, and OpenDX.  I know of a few libraries that support them, but
they are costly.  I wonder if Crystal Space supports them.
