What do you mean by demanding? I play common 2D Blu-ray discs on my laptop with Leawo (plays almost all) and VLC + added libraries (plays some). These programs play 3D Blu-rays as 2d movies, I don’t know what they could do with a 3D TV or other 3D device.
Leawo is free, however I have a sort of feel that they will make it payware once out of the beta phase.
If you have a Toshiba device, maybe their player would be worth a try:

IMO if one can see Blu-rays with a computer and suitable software, all is missing to watch them - and other 3D content, like 360° movies - on Pimax is an intermediate software layer, let’s call it a driver. Might be the VorpX drivers mentioned by @Wildcopper, or some other software developed by Pimax itself.
