The Virtual Boy is a 32-bit table-top portable video game console developed and manufactured by Nintendo. Released in 1995, it was marketed as the first console capable of displaying stereoscopic "3D" graphics. The player uses the console like a head-mounted display, placing their head against the eyepiece to see a red monochrome display. The games use a parallax effect to create the illusion of depth. Sales failed to meet targets, and by early 1996, Nintendo ceased distribution and game development, releasing only 22 games for the system.
Development of the Virtual Boy lasted four years and began originally under the project name of VR32. Nintendo entered a licensing agreement to use a "3D" LED eyepiece technology originally developed by U.S.-based company Reflection Technology. It also built a factory in China to be used only for Virtual Boy manufacturing.
