Not really 10 years - but a classic anyway

I picked up a VFX1 virtual reality headset from ebay at a killer price.
Now the problem with the VFX1 is that the interface card is limited to
only 640x480x256 colors, whereas the VFX1 helmet can run in 16bit or
truecolor. To get stereoscopic mode, the VFX1 uses interlaced video to
even lines to one LCD and odd lines to the other LCD. What would it
take to
tap the VGA output and somehow determine which lines are even and which
are odd and feed it to the helment directly? This is similar to the way
a TV works.

Searching though the net yielding the following hack: (use altavista to
translate from Portugese)

But he feeds the same signal to both LCDs thus stereo is lost. Any
