Titanic 3D Stamp Issued by Belgian Post

The new "Titanic in 3D" stereoscopic stamp will be issued by the Belgian post (bPost) for the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic in April 1912. The stamp was directed by Belgian cartoonist François Schuiten and Kris Maes.

The stamp is a regular Belgian stamp with a "3" value so it may be used to send a standard letter anywhere in the world. “Despite the erosion of the use of stamps, we see that they still exist. That's why creating stamps is a challenge that needs to be constantly creative,” said the artist.

The stamp will be issued on April 16, 2012 as a 'colllector' sheet including a pair of stamps, one for each side of a stereoscopic pair (full picture here under).

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.
