What is NVIDIA 3D Vision Driver?

Nvidia 3D Vision is a stereoscopic gaming kit which consists of LC shutter glasses and driver software which enables stereoscopic vision for any Direct3D game, with various degrees of compatibility. The stereo driver software can perform automatic stereoscopic conversion by using the 3D models submitted by the application and rendering two stereoscopic views instead of the standard mono view.
