A friend and I went antiquing yesterday and I came across a stereoscope and a basket full of slides from the 1880s. A stereoscope was the home DVD player of its day. Essentially it is two eyepieces through which one viewed special, dual image cards creating the illusion of three dimensional image. While the stereoscope we found was out of my price range, I did go back today and pick up a half dozen of the cards. I am no inspired to build my own reproduction of the vintage stereoscope we found as well as create some of my own cards for it.
