TOOB Earth hopes to bring the IMAX experience into the family (image: TOOB)

The creators of the original TOOB (Think Out Of Box) have spent the last two years researching and developing what they call the “world's first affordable dome screen.” Dubbed "TOOB Earth," the 4 foot diameter mini-IMAX screen is big enough for two people to sit in front of and, while it will obviously grab the attention of gamers and film-fanatics, its makers also see applications for the screen in simulation, medicine and education.  Read More

Along with GI Joes, Slinkies and Sea Monkeys, View-Masters are probably one of the most-remembered childhood products of the past few generations. Even if you yourself never got the chance to flip through disks of still images using one of the manually-operated stereoscopic viewers, chances are you at least knew someone who did. Well, now that you're all grown-up, you have the chance not only to relive your childhood by buying a View-Master-like Image3D viewer, but also to create a reel of your own photos to view in it. As a ten year-old, you would have thought that was pretty amazing.  Read More

Pictures and video can be instantly shared from within the app on Facebook, Twitter, Flick...

The iPhone has a ton of built-in features, but one feature it doesn't have is a 3D camera - until now. Snapily3D is an iPhone app that allows you to capture 3D pictures and video with the camera on your iPhone. The app is compatible with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPod touch 3rd generation and above, and walks you through the 3D picture-taking process through on-screen directions and prompts.  Read More

Engineers from Burton Inc. in Japan have rolled out a "True 3D" display, which evolved from work begun five years previously by teams at Keio University and Japan's national institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST). While most 3D displays available today involve a form of optical illusion that depends on the parallax or disparity inherent in human binocular vision, this new system, which can function in air or under water, needs no screen of any sort, and the effect is quite impressive.  Read More

Russian Aircraft Company's MiG-29

Russian Aircraft Company's MiG is best known for its fighter planes which have been used by the USSR, China, North Korea and North Vietnam since the beginning of WWII. These days, the former Government-owned RAC MiG is a publicly traded entity and competes on the open market with its technologies, having more than 1600 of its MiG-29 fighters in operation in 25 countries. Now MiG is claiming a major first in military aviation with the launch of a 3D flight simulator at the Dubai Air Show, providing volumetric visualization of beyond-the-cockpit space for trainee top guns. The simulator comes complete with the MiG-29’s cockpit and actual control systems.  Read More

Fujifilm's 3D cameras have been using a glasses-free lenticular system for a while now, but the company's 3D image viewer has had to wait until the latest version before incorporating the technology. The new FinePix REAL 3D V3 digital image viewer has also been treated to an HDMI input for direct connection to cameras like the Fujifilm FinePix REAL 3D W3, big screen TVs and other 3D-enabled devices.  Read More

The charge toward glasses-free 3D displays hasn't left the iPad out in the cold, as we pointed out a few months back. Now, using a bit of smoke and mirrors (well, mirrors at least) a team from Japan's Ochanomizu Women's University (OWU) has developed a novel approach that incorporates a centuries-old artist's trick to bring "tangible" depth to the iPad's 2D display.  Read More

So, you’re looking at that one photo you took, and wishing that the flower in the foreground was in focus instead of the person behind it? Well it’s no big deal, just go in and shift the focus.
