James Cameron has opened an Australian office to encourage more 3D movies and TV shows, including live sports broadcasts.
Having executive produced Sanctum, a stereoscopic 3D Australian movie, he is now planning to pilot a submersible to the 7-mile deep Mariana Trench, north of Papua New Guinea, for a feature-length documentary. He commissioned the single seater sub for around 7 M$.
The Necker sub above is NOT the one Cameron will use.
Fisher-Price (East Aurora, USA), a subsidiary of Mattel, announces a new partnership with SpatialView, the stereo 3D content distributor and auto-stereoscopic display add-on maker. Fisher-Price will offer a selection of images from the View-Master image archive, the largest collection of 3D still images in the world. Over 1,500,000,000 View-Master disks were sold since 1939.
“The View-Master archive is a virtual treasure-trove of 3D imagery capturing over 100 years of history and culture,” said Peter Snajczuk, Vice President of Marketing for Fisher-Price. “We’re thrilled to be working with Spatial View to make these spectacular images available digitally for download from ViewMasterDigital3D.com to a variety of 3D mobile devices and Internet-connected 3D TVs.”
Ther online store Viewmasterdigital3D will be launched this spring. 3D images for your mobile will be sold in packs of 18 to 21 images for $1.99. Just add a 3DeeSlide sheet on your mobile phone screen,and you will be able to see View-Master images in 3D!
