ESA Gives Us a 4K 3D Virtual Tour of the International Space Station
The European Space Agency (ESA) created a new 3D stereoscopic virtual tour of the International Space Station (ISS). Watch the 3D stereo version here under (or choose "2D" if you don't have any 3D glasses at hand).
3D Improvements in Cognitive Processing
According to a new study, 3D can sharpen a child’s brain for a protracted period after the movie has been viewed and have a short-term “brain training” effect. The study follows-on from research in 2015 which looked into the impact of the different film formats on adults.
Improvement in ‘cognitive processing’ is almost three times greater as a result of watching stereoscopic 3D rather than a 2D film.
