Next year is already scheduled to have a bunch of great blockbusters. One, however, you’ve already seen, just never like this. Terminator 2: Judgment Day is been re-released in 3D for the film’s 25th anniversary.
The Hubble telescope has been responsible for showing us some of the universes most incredible sights. But as lovely as they are, sometimes seeing them flat just isn’t enough. Which is why we love this 3D nebula fly-by so much.
Google released a new 360-degree immersive video on its Spotlight Stories app yesterday—the first featuring real human actors instead of animation. It’s an action-packed short directed by Fast & Furious director Justin Lin. I downloaded the 1GB 360 video and took it for a literal spin (I was sitting in a swivel…
Like most friends, Rabbit and Deer don't have quite everything in common, but at least they're both 2D-animated characters. Things change rapidly in this ingenious and sweet short film when Deer enters the third dimension while his friend is still 2D.
Princess Bubblegum as Batgirl? BMO as Alfred? Gunter as...well...the Penguin? We're in. These 3D models dressing the characters from Adventure Time as Batman friends and foes are perfect and we want them on our desks pronto.
Blockbuster 3D movies can be tremendously disappointing. But you know what's not disappointing at all? This video that lets you fly across a Martian chaos terrain, in 3D.

The first rule of visiting any museum is "Do Not Touch." But, the Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology is trying to ease that restriction, at least a little bit, by launching an interactive site where visitors can view virtual 3D objects as if they were holding them.
These stunning 3D sand designs from New Zealand are simple stunning. Scraping optical illusions into the lovely beaches of Mount Maunganui (and others), the creators from 3DSD certainly know how to trick the eyes.
It's a question that has occurred to anyone who has ever sat in a theater fiddling with their theater-provided 3D shades waiting for the promos to finish rolling up: Why don't these work if I flip them around? Here's the physics behind the persnicketiness of 3D glasses.
Whovians may be grumbling that the 50th anniversay of the longest-running scifi show in the world is only getting a 60-minute special to mark the occasion, but at least it just got upgraded.

Tonight we got our first look at Dredd, the rebooted adaptation of Britain's favorite dystopian super-cop, Judge Dredd.
