The 3D Goggle[3] (3D ゴーグル), known in the United States as 3-D Goggles, and often advertised as 3-D Goggle, is a Pioneer LaserActive active shutter 3D glasses peripheral developed and published by Pioneer.


The hardware uses a shutter system to close the left and right lens rapidly to create a 3D effect. A disadvantage is that it halves the effective frame-rate, which some users can perceive as flicker. It also tends to be incompatible with cathode-ray tube televisions.

Additionally, the hardware is cross-compatible with both the Sega Master System's 3-D Glasses and the Nintendo Family Computer's Family Computer 3D System, which utilizes identical technology, and can also be used with any 3.5mm connection to view three dimensional media.[4]
