They are basically just LCD shutters that worked with their own range of graphics cards and produced a 3d image by offsetting the scanlines and showing each eye only one set of scanlines. At least, that is my understanding of it anyway. Was pretty impressive back in the day, and am tempted to put something together so I can give them a go again.

These are probably my most obscure bits in my collection. A pair of Elsa Revelator 3D glasses from around 1999, and a tandy/bandai electronic gold game from around 1980.

Cheers both, have ordered a stepdown converter that will be here tomorrow. Good to know the megadrive one works too as I think I have a spare knocking around.

AC adapter/Tap Question

My virtual boy arrives tomorrow, it is a japanese model with tap and ac adapter. I'd like to use the AC adapter, but being in the UK I have 230v at the wall, and I believe japan uses 100v. I can get a stewpdown converter that will get me to 110v, but not down to 100v. Is that close enough or will I damage my power supply?

EDIT - SORRY! Some how posted this in completely wrong place, can someone move it?

Looking to buy my first virtual boy. I'm in the UK and so buying locally doesnt really seem to be an option. I see loads on ebay in japan and USA but does make me nervous buying something specialist and expensive via ebay from someone on the other side of the world. Found this forum when first doing my research into them and so figured this might be a good way to find my very own virtual boy! So if anyone has one for sale and is willing to ship to the UK, or has any leads on a known good example, please let me know.

The ideal would be a good condition complete US boxed example with Mario clash, but I'm open to everything.
