If you think 3D technology is meant only for the entertainment industry like television, movies and games then you will be surprised to know that even education industry is interested in 3D technology and using it to make the teaching interesting for students.
The students of biology class learned their work in the 3D enabled projectors with the help of 3D glasses. If you check the reaction of the student then you will come to know that they are quite happy with the 3D teaching. Their reactions were positive. Many were thrilled to learn with the help of 3D technology. Teachers as well as students are happy with the way difficult topics can be explained in it.
Unfortunately, this is possible only for a few well funded schools of developed countries. They can expect those 3D images in their palms also within next few years but many developing countries cannot afford this and will have to work on the old systems only. For them these new technologies can only be in the books and they still need to only imagine the difficult concept from the text book.

As many are questioning the long-term effects of watching 3D images for long periods of time, Sony UK noted the changes that we’re seeing with 3D content, and how it will affect viewers and their comfort levels. Your brain focuses on what it’s seeing in an entirely new way, as the stereoscopic effects do take some getting used to. However, there are techniques that are emerging that should help to alleviate most, if not all, of these effects, making for a better 3D experience.
The 3D track has been fun to follow. Initially, things looked strong. Then, for a period, things cooled off, as many realized that Hollywood was using it as a gimmick to sell us on horrible scripts. But, alas, the heavy hitters in Tinseltown are now beginning to back the 3D platform, and promise to bring better technology, better movies, and an overall better experience.
Remember, color television took some getting used to for many, so don’t think that this is going to go away. Hearing Sony talk about better content and technology gets us all riled up. We love hearing about this stuff, and knowing that the big dogs are going to elevate the platform further only re-establishes what we already knew: 3D is here to stay, and with advancement will become the platform of the 21st century.
Seeing the planets in 3D could change science as we know it. Interested in getting an up close look? Grab your 3D glasses, because this is not a drill
For millennia, we have stared at the sky and wondered just what celestial bodies looked like up close. Well, now you’ll be able to see Mercury up close and personal with 3D images received at NASA. The Messenger satellite has begun to orbit the planet and take detailed images to help us better understand our incredibly fiery neighbor. It may not be a beach paradise, but with this kind of detail, expect those with some scientific interest to be quite interested.
A German aerospace facility will collect and organize the data. Are you ready for the best part? You won’t need to wear glasses to get this 3D experience. Because of the density and crust questions that scientists are still trying to answer, there are many questions that make Mercury the biggest mystery in our solar system. Thanks to advancements in photo imaging and 3D landscapes, it looks like we’ll finally be getting the mystery of Mercury unravelled.
So, from the same field that gave us Teflon and Velcro, we are now getting quality 3D imaging from global space programs. Sure, we haven’t developed Star Destroyers or teleportation yet, but let’s just get some 3D images first. Then we can work on building the USS Enterprise...
