1947 The first Russian 3D movie, Robinson Crusoe, is produced.
1952 Touted as the world’s first feature-length 3D movie, Bwana Devil is released in the USA and heralds a short-lived boom in 3D movie production.
1953 Two ground-breaking 3D movies are released: Man in the Dark and House of Wax. The latter is the first 3D movie released with stereo sound, and is directed by André De Toth—who has only one eye.
1953 The 3-D Follies becomes the first 3D film to be cancelled during production, signalling the end of the 3D boom.
1960 September Storm is the first anaglyphic movie released in the Cinemascope format (although technically it’s just an expanded non-anamorphic film).
1981 Comin at Ya! is released in anaglyphic format using the “over and under” process (where two views are printted on a single frame, one above the other). This film launches the 3D boom of the 1980s that includes Amityville 3-DFriday the 13th Part III and Jaws 3-D.
2009 James Cameron’s film Avatar, shot with the Fusion Camera System he helped develop, is hailed as the best 3D film to date and helps push 3D towards the mainstream.
2010 The world’s first dedicated 3D television channel, South Korea’s SKY 3D, launches with side-by-side 1920x1080i resolution.
2010 The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) features prototype 3D televisions from most major manufacturers.

About 3D

3D was first created back in the 1950 in order to give movie goest a better experience and encourage more people to make a trip to the movie theater in order for the production companies to gain more revenues.
However, because it was extremely expensive to produce 3D films, and there were a lot of technological difficulties back then, 3D films occurred only on rare occasions.
In the 80s 3D make a comeback thanks to the invention of the VCR.
Today, 3D is not just for movies anymore, one cam find 3d video games, 3D televisions for watching regular TV and there is the 3D laptop.
Even wore exciting is that many companies are working to create more 3D products, including the Toshiba no glasses 3D TV, turn to the Links page to see an article about that.
