If anyone out there - I'm thinking UK forum members - still hasn't got any red/blue 3D glasses to use for viewing the gorgeous anaglyphs many UMSF members are now posting, here's an idea.

If you have a decent-sized newsagent near you, you can get a pair of pretty good quality plastic-framed 3D glasses with this week's issue of the kids magazine "Dr Who Adventures". Because they're plastic-framed they're much more rigid than the usual cardboard ones you often find in magazines, and they're good quality, too. I know, I know, it's a kids magazine, but you can always pass on the mag itself to a friend or neighbour's kid if you don't want it. (You might want to keep hold of the centrespread 3D "Silence" poster tho, it's great - er, I mean, the depth of field is a great illustration of 3D imagery... Think I got away with that... cool.gif )

Alternative sources of glasses: try your local discount bookstore, there's bound to be at least one 3D book of bugs/dinosaurs/whatever with a free pair of glasses inside, And, of course, as others have said, if you're a US Forum member you can probably get some free 3D glasses just by writing nicely to your local NASA centre.

Or, you could just search "clip-on anaglyph glasses" on Google. They're in stock on Amazon. I use mine all the time.
