Found those 3D glasses yet?

Quite some time ago (we're talking years here), someone posted a whole bunch of 3D photos to the vintage newsgroup that I subscribed to. I created a subfolder for them, downloaded 'em all, and promptly forgot them.

A few months ago, I purchased one of my beloved crappy movie collections and discovered that you could watch each film in either regular 2D or 3D versions. Cool! I mentioned to my wife that I needed some red and blue acetate to make a pair of glasses, and then forgot about it.

Last week (isn't this exciting?) my wife was travelling and found a pair of 3D glasses. Did I want them? You bet.

Alas, the movies are filmed in some "new" 3D technology and require special electronic glasses that are rather expensive for the amount of use I'd get out of them. The company is putting out some new collections for their 3D, but I have better things to spend my money on.

Then I remembered those old 3D photos I'd saved... somewhere. I found them, and now I get to share some of them with you.

Here are the first few. Each photo will appear in a popup window. Make original size for best effect. The naughty ones are labeled as such, so don't go blaming me if you open them up at work (although why you'd be looking at 3D pictures at work is beyond me, you look like a dork in those glasses).

Enjoy, and remember, most of these are vintage.

There are plenty left, so if you're interested in me posting more of these, let me know in the comments or by email.

Mega cool,Ted.Here's a way cool 3D site: No bikini babes but still interesting. Might as well get plenty of use out of those glasses.Especially check out both the gallery and the Mars gallery.I still have a pair of those glasses stuffed into an old back issue of Astronomy magazine.Special 3D issue.Right now I have some furniture stored in front of my magazine shelves so they're kinda hard to get to but I'll get to them soon enough.Best pic in the whole article was a direct overhead shot of a smoldering volcano here on Earth.Can't even begin to describe it.

Found that volcano image on the net. Don't know if it's 3D or not.Oh and my glasses aren't the special electric kind or anything but the old cheapies BTW.
