Stereoscopic 3-D has received a lot of attention lately, strongly influenced by the entertainment industry. Additionally, Virtual Reality (VR) is increasingly being applied to more problems in various industries. This seminar will present an introduction to 3-D & VR, clarify various terminology such as 3D, 2.5D, 4D, RealD, and S3D, and present a timeline showing the history of 3-D and related technologies stretching from the 1800’s to present day 3D Televisions and VR devices.
