The BBC has written an article about the use of 3D glasses in helping to defeat Hitler during World War ll.
It describes how ‘a team of World War II experts disrupted Nazi plans to bombard Britain’, by using a Victorian invention called the stereoscope, a pair of glasses that allowed the British to look at aerial photographs and see the enemy landscape in 3D.
This enabled the photographic identifiers to measure the height of rockets and their launch sites, and then attack these sites, limiting the German’s attack capabilities on the UK.
How’s that for a spec-tacular achievement!
