3d glasses - gimmick?

I jsut found some of these on a site from They use split images to make you believe you are inside the picture. Does anyone know if these things actually get your card to render separate images - it requires 120Hz from the monitor so I guess getting the vSync rihgt would be a bit of a nightmare? Or do they just slightly shift a single image to make it look like each eye sees different things? Also what kind of resolution would you get - I'd gladly give up a 3D experience(I think) if it meant I didn't have to stay at 640*480 or something.

Not surprisingly enough the site isn't very forthcoming with such information. Gimmick or not?
