The Croods is a 3D comedy adventure from DreamWorks Animation that will be released in March 2013 and is actually in postproduction.
The Croods is a comedy adventure that takes us back to the beginning - to a previously undiscovered era known as the Croodacious - a time when Mother Nature was still experimenting and the flora and fauna we know today hasn't evolved yet. The Croods is a 3D stereoscopic animation movie produced by Kristine Belson and Jane Hartwell, and directed by Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders.
Exceptional 3D and VEFXi today announced a strategic alliance to introduce the world’s first live video real-time converter for use with autostereoscopic 3D. The 3D-Bee ‘Ultimate’ is the world's first hardware-based 2D-to-3D real-time converter for glasses-free 3D offering full support for Exceptional 3D’s patented auto-stereoscopic 3D display solutions.
The 3D-Bee Ultimate enables virtually plug-&-play replacement of any existing video monitor and 2D video content seen in public venues with this no-glasses 3D solution. Acceptable input video consists of 2D, 60Hz, 1080p resolution, so any ‘on-the-fly’ conversion on Exceptional 3D’s digital display solutions will effectively deliver a customer-facing glasses-free 3D viewing experience.

Even if that book is not free, like this one. Just please acknowledge the source of the info. You can also translate this book to your own language, and please consider distributing it for free as well if you can...I would translate it to Spanish, but since I don't have a way to check and correct my bad orthography...and I am running out of time here...I will leave it to some one else to do that."
