Technology is one thing we can say is infinite. The loop is endless! Since the beginning of time everything whether human or animal has gone through a development phase. And that is exactly what technology follows. The ever developing world is full of technologically advanced, high-tech products every which we look.

From entertainment industry to manufacturing, medical, engineering, communication, as well as your ordinary kitchen appliances are not so ordinary anymore. Anything that you can think of has multiplied a 1000 times in technology and has been put forth for this world to utilize and avail the amazing experiences and benefits.

Talking of entertainment industry, one such high-tech amazing entertainment product is a pair of 3D viewing glasses.

Many of us any one point in our lives would have completely been taken aback that how a flat red and blue image at the back of the newspaper magazine just came to life. Or maybe your parents took you to an IMAX theatre and you were stunned by a jaw dropping moment on screen when the actor grabbed out and could actually reach out to you.

Did you ever wonder how did those red and blue plastic glasses work? What about those IMAX movies? And how has it all developed over time?

In the mid 19th century, Charles Wheatstone discovered that basically if he viewed two similar but not the same, images put side by side, it would give them three-dimensionality. This way the phenomenon mimicked what our two eyes could see in reality.

Finally when in 1930’s, films and movies became the superior media for entertainment did stereoscope took it righteous place that used to be once popular in bars and arcades.

Today there are many different ways that a 3D pair of glasses would work with a film. Some glasses require different lenses while some are polarized so that no tint is needed by the user.

Nowadays you don’t even require visiting a theatre for 3D movie viewing; you can just enjoy it at your home system.
