Here’s a stereoscopic demo showing how I’m bookmarking 3D YouTube videos for the VRTube app (the VRTube link has been added to my video description below).

Watch this video in 2D or stereoscopic 3D by selecting the viewing options in “Settings” (if available in your YouTube video player).

…or you might have a media player that you prefer.

One of the greatest things to come out of this most recent chatter about virtual reality and stereoscopic viewers is the number of good apps that will potentially be created, and here’s two possible examples – a YouTube 3D app for Android and one for iPhones and iPads. So let’s take a look at these and give the developers some valuable feedback.

Here are the two apps I’m referring to in this video:

I’ve had this mirrored stereoscope for many years, but now I’m modifying it so I can strap it onto my face.
Obviously you could make your own out of cardboard, plastic or whatever ejects your seat, baby, but you have to use front surface mirrors.

Watch this video with your favorite stereoscopic viewer or look at it in 2D by placing your hand over one eye. :/

You can also download this video with your favorite YouTube video downloader (search for the best ones available, e.g., “4K Video Downloader” and “Best Video Downloader”), then use a freeware media player with stereoscopic 3D and 2D viewing options:
KMPlayer: http://www.kmplayer.com/
Bino: http://bino3d.org/
XBMC: http://xbmc.org/
…or you might have your own that you prefer.

In addition to getting my voice ready to stick my hand up Janice Maddy’s butt if she keeps refusing to cooperate, here are the three new toys I’m talking about in this video:

Hasbro My3D Viewer: http://www.berezin.com/3d/my3d.htm

You can watch this YouTube video in stereoscopic 3D with a stereoscope or virtual reality viewer. To view it in 2D, place your hand over one eye. :/

Antique stereo cards are a square image format (commonly with an arched top), so do you think square images might be the best compromise for virtual reality, stereoscopic viewers and 3D TVs?
