If it is real, it is probably a cheap plastic lense you put over your current TV, enlarging it... taking away all the quality... Jason :-hmmm

I don't know what this has to do with Flight Sim, but yeah, it's a cheap fresnal lens with a horrible picture that projects on your wall.

Why is someone posting spam links in the FS forum? Is this a new way to reach people that normally filter this junk from their email?The moderators need to take of this and make sure others don't promote products in this manner.

I used to see a smaller version of these things advertised in the back of comic books when I was a kid, along with the x-ray glasses. That tells you something. However, I did try the x-ray glasses ($1.29 + postage) on my big brother's girlfriend. They didn't work either. Fitz

As others have said it will be a large fresnel lens you place in front of the TV to either enlarge the picture or project it onto a wall.I haven't visited that site but purchase something similar from a UK site in the hope of getting some depth of field view in FS.It did work to some extent, the image was bigger but some distoration at the edges. I guess if I persevered with it I could get it better.A number of people do use glass fresnels to get the 3D depth of field effect but the glass ones do cost appreiably more than the plastic ones.Botom line, if you can afford to throw the money away give it a go, otherwise forget it :-)
