The long history of 3D technology can be drawn the way back to the start of photography. A new invention by David Brewster in 1844, Stereoscope could take 3D photographic images. At the Great Exhibition in 1851, a picture of Queen Victoria taken by Louis Jules Duboscq, using the improved technology became very well known throughout the world. Soon, the craze for steroscopic cameras caught on and these were quite commonly used by World War II. Read on to gather more info on history of 3D technology.

In the coming years, there were further improvements in the technology, as the history of 3D technology reveals. Kinematascope, a stereo animation camera was invented, followed the first anaglyph movie was produced in 1915. In 1922 the first public 3D movie, “The Power of Love”, was produced and it was in 1935 that the first 3D Color movie was produced.

As per the history of 3D technology, the use of this technology was to remain latent for over a decade. The 1950s saw a comeback for the 3D technology. During these times, TVs had become very popular. By 1950, a number of 3D movies were being created, for instance, “Bwana Devil”,, “House of Wax” and many more. But not all movie theaters were operational with the 3D technology.

In the 1960s, in the history of 3D technology, a new technology known as Space-Vision 3D was released. This new technology removed the need to use two cameras to display 3D movies. The first movie to use this technology was “The Bubble” and the 3D experience still lured in huge audiences.
