April Fools' Day Stereoscopic Jokes
StereoscopyNews did a worldwide survey about stereoscopic jokes and the results are now ready to be published.
All stereographers are used to be asked "Why do you have two cameras ?" Best answers we collected (most on the Flickr Anaglyph discussion group):
- Where do you see two cameras? Are you drunk?
- I aways take two pictures in case one does not turn out.
- I am blind in one eye, so I hope this will compensate.
- It was 'Buy One Get One Free' at WalMart.
- I am working for a guy who left the AA.
- I am taking pictures for a divorced couple and each of them want his own pictures set.
- I couldn't afford a 12 megapixels cam, so I bought two with 6 instead.
- Please do not insult my robot by calling it two cameras.
Toshiba Spectacle: Experience one-eyed 3D so real, you'd think you were using both eyes!
Toshiba revealed exactly one year ago a spectacular semi-autostereoscopic technology allowing 3D vision with one eye only (or 6D vision if you buy two 3D monocles). If you have not yet seen the Toshiba demo video, watch it here under.
Toshiba Spectacle: World's First and Only 3D Monocle
Watching movies and playing games has never felt so real -- and so comfortable! The Spectacle is the product of groundbreaking technology and design, and fitting it all into a small circular package wasn't easy. How did we do it?
Two triangular polarizing lenses were melded in parallel and encased in black-plated tungsten carbide for a lightweight and durable construction. For comfort, the casing was molded into the shape of an average human eye hole, and draped in bonded leather. Visit the Toshiba 3D monocle web sitefor more info.
Important Consumer Notice: Refrain from using two Toshiba Spectacle 3D devices simultaneously in each eye. Doing so may cause each device to render the corresponding 3D image in 3D yet again, resulting in an uncomfortable and infinite loop.
