I had my first encounter with 3D technology at Disney World’s “Honey, I Shrunk the Audience!” attraction. I strapped on my flimsy cardboard glasses and settled in for some science lab hijinks. The scene that unfolded involved futuristic aircraft and holograms, all of which seemed to be just out of reach. That was over 10 years ago now, so I’ve been thinking that 3D is outdated. But then Hollywood got a hold of this 90’s trend. Now, almost every big budget action film comes out in two formats: 2D and 3D. People can even watch their favorite TV shows in 3D.
The good news for us spendthrifts is that we can get a multidimensional look without dropping a ton of money on a fancy gadget.
