  1. First 3D rendered film from 1972This is really neat. It’s a very very early digital 3D rendered film. It looks old because it is.I also think this is the only digital copy of it.

  2. Thanks for such a fabulous information. I really like iphone 3g application and it is very cool, moreover its apps makes life so easy that almost every work can be done on it.

  3. Something I hate about 3D movies.
    For some reason my eyes can’t see in 3D. I have tried the early 2 colored glasses, the newer polarised glasses, battery operated ones for the home 3D TV.
    None work

    Good thing my CCTV spy cameras are in 2D
