Default Anybody else experiencing the awesomeness of Google Chrome w/ 3D?

As you all probably know, google develops some pretty interesting technologies at the very end of March. This year, it popped up as an innocuous little feature in gmail called 'autopilot'. Checking out the tech description, it seems that they utilized features from CADIE*, a strong-AI system that google brought online at 11:59:59pm on March 31st.

Delving a little deeper into the documentation, one learns that CADIE wants to bridge the gap between the 3D real world and the 2D digital world, and created a plugin for Chrome that enables stereoscopic 3D. Fortuitious as it was, I hung onto a pair of glasses leftover from the Super Bowl, and I am currently typing into a text box that's sunk into my monitor. You guys need to join me in the future and check this out!!!

* - a link to CADIE also appears on the google homepage.

P.S. Check out some of the new featured products at www.thinkgeek.com!
