3D Color-TV is Here!

Remote operator of nuclear reactor can now view in depth and color


Three-dimensional coior-TV is now providing realistic viewing of adjustments inside a nuclear reactor. Use of stereo allows the precise depth perception necessary for correct positioning of controls, and use of color-TV permits quick identification by the control operator of reactor equipment in the dangerous area where no human is safe.

Movies that Leap From the Screen! (Jan, 1929)

Movies that Leap From the Screen!


A POOR boy from Budapest, who in his early childhood learned about the functions of the human eye in his struggle against defective vision, has invented a system whereby stereoscopic movies may be projected upon the screen and viewed by the audience without the use of the usual visors and colored screens!

Television in Three Dimensions (Feb, 1931)

Television in Three Dimensions

A DEVICE which can produce a 360 degree picture by television through a stereoscope scanner has been invented by Leslie Gould, a radio engineer of Bridgeport, Connecticut. With Mr. Gould’s television system it is possible to televise a boxing match, a play, an orchestra, or any other spectacle whose scene of action can be compressed into a reasonable space.

How to adapt any 8 or 16mm movie camera and projector to take and show stereo movies.

By William G. Esmond

IF you own an 8 or 16mm movie camera and projector, you can make your own amazingly lifelike three dimensional movies in full color or black and white at a cost of less than $6 for equipment.

The principle of stereoscopic vision is simple. Each eye sees a slightly different aspect of any view. The right eye sees slightly more of the right side of solid objects in the foreground, and the left eye sees slightly more of the left side. In addition, when the eyes are gazing at an object in the foreground, the objects seen by the right eye in the background are displaced to the right, and the objects seen by the left eye in the background are displaced to the left.

Making Third Dimension Spectacles (Mar, 1935)

Making Third Dimension Spectacles

SEE your own photographs in true perspective with these inexpensive, easily-made “third dimension” spectacles—enjoy “living scenes” where every contour, every figure is distinctly visible.

The principle of the old-fashioned stereoscope, with its double-image views in which figures and scenery stood out in bold relief, is merely applied to your own snapshots.

You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet (Oct, 1952)

Wow, I had no idea that Riches department store in Atlanta GA. beat the Home Shopping Network to the punch by over 30 years. Oh and black-face is just plain scary.

You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet

When television really starts rolling, modern electronic miracles will enable it to play a major role in every phase of your life in addition to providing your home entertainment.

By Henry M. Lewis, Jr.

LUCILLE Ball, Arthur Godfrey and Uncle Miltie may have been hogging the TV spotlight but a new type of program is just around the corner.

The same brains that were responsible for television’s becoming your master in your own home now are working night and day to make it your servant everywhere else. Even now it has begun to work for you in your office, farm, factory, classroom, bank, super-market, department store, neighborhood theater and a whole host of other places too numerous to mention. Why, it’ll even work for you in a traffic jam!

Let’s take a look at tomorrow. You’re going shopping and your route takes you through a vehicular tunnel under a broad river. There has been a smashup before you reach the tunnel, but traffic doesn’t choke up either entrance. A squad car, wrecker and ambulance are on the scene. How? Because a dispatcher at police headquarters saw the accident on a television set.


A new way of giving pictures an effect of depth, has been devised by a Bridgeport, Conn., inventor, who foresees its application in the movies. His method provides a miniature picture that is viewed with one eye, while a full-sized picture is viewed with the other. Since the two pictures are taken from slightly different viewpoints, a stereoscopic effect is obtained. The advantage of this method when applied to motion pictures, he points out, is that a theater patron may view a movie either in the ordinary way or with added depth, as he chooses.

“Cross-eyed” X-ray Casts 3-dimension Image (Nov, 1932)

“Cross-eyed” X-ray Casts 3-dimension Image

X-RAY shadowgraphs have heretofore displayed only two dimensions, height and width, but with the recent development of the “cross-eyed” X-ray a third dimension, depth, is added, making the image appear like a sculptured skeleton.

The three-dimensional X-ray is the invention of Prof. Jesse W. Du Mond, a Pasadena, California, scientist, who calls his instrument a “Stereofluoroscope.”

The main element of the machine is a pair of X-ray tubes whose beams, directed against the patient as illustrated in the drawing above, intersect in the body, thus casting shadows in two different planes.
