Yes they do exist (X-Specs and Haitex). Haitex can be reached at
(803) 881-7518. X-Specs are still available and new products are on the
way. Virtual Reality has resurrected interest in the product.

Pin 6 (0xbfe001 in ciaa, see the Amiga Hardware Manual for details), is
configured as an output. The bit is toggled during vertical blanking to
flip the glasses (VERTB or COPPER interrupt).

The glasses do not work well with slow-decay phosphor or LC displays. They
will not work with the Microway FlickerFixer. They work *great* with the
Commodore Display Enhancer [as long as the interlace bit is disabled].
If you write your own copper lists and don't use the "interlace trick" to get
3D, you'll have no problems. Remember my 3D multiplayer dogfight simulator
I showed at DevCon Atlanta, running on two A3000s with de-interlacers enabled?

You can buy a brand new pair from Haitex. They're giving the Amiga market
