A company from Taiwan called Kirk Hsu has launched a new Kickstarter campaign for a set-top box.

Called the Edison 3D, it has been designed to allow users to easily convert normal 2D TV content into full 3D content, providing you with a great 3D experience, without the need for specialised 3D TVs or equipment.

To access this content you can use the included 3D active shutter glasses, but aside from that all you have to do is plug it in and you are ready to watch 3D content in Full HD Quality Video 1080P at 60Hz.

Kirk Hsu explained more about it with the following:

By taking the fact that our brain requires more than 1/24th of a second to process any visual stimuli and to form meaning at immediate sensory level by concentrating particularly on visual stimuli, Differentiating Timing Frequencies of the LEFT and RIGHT flickering images further perplexes our brain to interpret 3D Moving Images or 3D Videos. In other words, 3D effect of 2D moving image source can be attained through the manipulation of video input signal through the Edison 3D Converter and its accompanying 3D Active Shutter glasses. Enjoy high-definition 3D video from your existing 2D TV at the comfort of your own home with “Edison 3D (2D to 3D Converter) and 3D Active Shutter Glasses.

You can take a quick look at it via the video below, and back the project at the source link, those who pledge $169 or more will get a pre-order.
