[Tig] DarbeeVision?

Yesterday I was reading EE Times and read an article about 
"DarbeeVision" (http://www.darbeevision.com/) which is both a 
dual-camera shooting/post-processing technique, as well as a 
post-processing only technique (less effective) which would even be 
embedded in a TV.  The claim is that "depth cues" are embedded in the 
image that the human visual system in the brain automatically 
interprets.  It is claimed that early versions of this were used to 
enhance Robert Altman's "Gosford Park".

It may be that this has been discussed at length elsewhere, but I have 
never seen mention of it here.  Does anyone here have experience with 
DarbeeVision?  Is it the consensus that the resulting "2.5-D" contrast 
is a good thing, or is it a tiresome distraction best left as a 
curiosity or for special cases?
