The latest in 3D technology for computer games rests on wireless glasses for one company.

Graphics cards company Nvidia uses the glasses, which have LCD lenses, to go from black to transparent quickly enough to produce the effect, the Independent reports.

According to Doug McConkey of Criterion Games, the effect is "absolutely fantastic".

"Gaming offers a truer 3D experience and the technology is a lot further along - you don"t have to sit there in stupid coloured glasses and get a headache after half an hour," he told the paper.

GeForce 3D Vision from Nvidia is available in the UK this month, for use on numerous PC games.

Last year, Nvidia was named one of Fortune"s Most Admired Companies and was listed in BusinessWeek"s top 50.

It also received a Standard of Excellence award from WebAwards.

The firm was established in 1993 and has a global workforce of more than 5,000 people.

It has its headquarters in California.
