First 3D 'Wiggle' video published
A Wiggle image is an image with two rapidly alternating views (usually an animated .gif image). Now a pair of directors working under the name "A Nice idea every day" created a "3D" musical for Mint Julep using the same technique, giving 1) a strong depth feeling, and 2) strong headaches... on any screen, ans without any glasses!
How strange it may be, as a first in the world, the work has its own merits. Check for yourself here under.
Paper and Scissors 3D for Valentine's day
Worried that your valentines will fall flat? Make them stand out by incorporating small treats like lollipops or glow sticks. Material needed: 2D camera, photo printer, paper, scissors.
Girls: Take a picture of your child with her hand in a fist and arm outstretched. After the picture is printed, cut small slits through the card at the top and bottom of the hand and slip the lollipop stick through the slits, so it appears as if she is holding the treat.
Boys: the method is the same, but use a thin glow stick in order to make a perfectly credible light sabre, a perfect gift at a time when Star Wars is re-released in stereoscopic 3D.
3D contact lenses ? Only if you are US soldiers...
Contact lenses that help enhance normal vision with megapixel stereoscopic 3D panoramic images are being designed by reserchers from Innovega (Bellevue, WA, USA) using military funding from DARPA (USA).
The new system consists of advanced contact lenses working in conjunction with lightweight eyewear. Normally, the human eye is limited in its ability to focus on objects placed very near it, but the contact lenses contain optics that focus images displayed on the eyewear onto the light-sensing retina in the back of the eye, allowing the wearer to see them properly and appearing as equivalent to a 240-inch television, viewed at a distance of 10 feet.
