The nu3dvu glasses are still available (now your choice,
plastic or wooden) from:
Nu 3-D Vu Co.
71 E. 28th Ave.
Eugene, OR 97405
Aldrich also sells something that looks comparable,
although I haven't actually seen them (Cat. number Z15,675-2,
retailing for about $40 US).
A machinist at Chicago actually fabricated a mirror system
that attaches to the monitor of the PS-390, where the mirrors
are on a massive metal arm that swings up and down on hinges. This
works very nicely, but I advise strongly against attempting to
duplicate, since on at least one occasion the mirrors have fallen
on my head as I leaned in to peer at some molecular detail...
And of course, the Xtal-Eyes make all this side-by-side
stuff seem silly and obsolete. If you can afford them.
