The next best thing to surfing in Hawaii? Probably surfing somewhere else. The best thing after that? Watching people surf in Hawaii in 3D. The people are more beautiful, the waves are sicker and Hawaii makes 3D actually sorta cool.
Those classic red and blue 3D glasses are still useful! But where the heck can you find a pair in a pinch? Don't worry, with an old CD case and a couple o' sharpies, it's ridiculously easy to make your own.
Want to make your own crazy eye-popping 3D images? It's actually not that tough. You'll just need a digital camera, some image-editing software, and this tutorial. Oh, and some 3D glasses so that you can admire your work properly.
Consider the shrimp. Delicious to eat, whether doomed to a deep fryer or steamed and dunked in cocktail sauce. But, they're also quite enjoyable to watch prancing around! Especially in 3D, seen here, with a suitably sci-fi underwater soundtrack.
It seems like 3D is everywhere. Movies, living rooms. Even real life is 3D! But how does it all work?
Wanna know why most 3D movies are pretty crappy right now? A top CG supervisor from a big visual effects studio risks his job to explain it all—from the piss-poor tech of fake 3D to the greed. [Gizmodo]
I'm not one of those people who gets a rush out of partaking in extreme sports—a rush of ANXIETY, maybe!—but I must say that this 3D clip of a fellow bombing a hill looks not altogether unpleasant! [Flickr]
You can put 3D on all the kiddie movies and cartoons you want. Me? I'll take my third dimension with a healthy dose of bullet shells and giant rims. Oh, and make it slow-motion, if you don't mind. Like this!
Einstein. Worm holes. Black holes. Galaxies. Gas giants. This is precisely the stuff I want to see in 3D. The fact that it's set to some thumping Benny Benassi remix certainly doesn't hurt matters either. [YouTube]
If you're immersing yourself in 3D world, you don't want that world to be anything like our own, right? Because then you could just go outside! Instead, dive deep into this beautifully dystopian city in the sky.
If two intense hours of Tron in 3D seems like a bit much, maybe spending a few minutes with some three-dee fishies is more your speed. This clip, shot at the Georgia Aquarium, is the perfect bite-sized 3D treat.
In this corner: a man-sized bunny with a heart of gold and abundant Navy SEAL training. In the opposing: three nondescript forest rodents of pure, butterfly-bopping malevolence. It's a rumble you'll remember, and it all takes place in glorious 3D.
Who's buying 3DTVs and 3D Blu-ray players? People who watched 3D movies in theaters, then want to re-live the experience at home. So why are the top movies, like Avatar and Coraline only available as bundles with hardware? What's the deal?
