In Lebanon, They Tag Walls in 3D
Life in Beirut, Lebanon is not always easy but the graffiti scene in Beirut is thriving, and you rarely find an empty wall in Beirut’s busiest streets that hasn’t been bombed.
Phat2 is the best known graffiti artist there. He has its own shop (where you will find paint cans, etc.) and started recently to tag walls in red and cyan to offer some eye candy to the few anaglyph glasses owners in central Beirut!

Not a 3D News: the "Big Board" 4K Screen
The new Panasonic “Big Board” under construction at Churchill Downs, the legendary home of the Kentucky Derby, will be the only video board in an outdoor stadium or arena capable of displaying 4K.

Something is Weird with This Way to Take a 3D Selfie
Rob Jenkins and Christie Kerr, of the universities of York and Glasgow respectively, have published a paper demonstrating that readily identifiable images of faces can be extracted from reflections in the corneas of well-lit subjects in photos taken by sufficiently high-resolution cameras.
More, they say that using reflections from both eyes of the subject will leave a stereoscopic 3D picture of the murderer in the eyes of the victim! But there is a catch: you will need to grab the murder on a 39 megapixels surveillance camera in a well lit environment...
3DWiggle, the Easy Way to Display 3D Pics on 2D Screens
"Wiggle 3D" images are stereoscopic 3D images alternating left and right views and counting of your brain to fuse the two viewpoints in a 3D picture - and it works up to a point at least...
The 3DWiggle application was released in November 2013 by Perspectives Software (Zurich, Switzerland) and it dramatically simplifies and speeds up the process of creating "Wiggle 3D" Images.
