Lesson 1 February 11 2016

We learnt about the use of a Stereoscope, the term means a ‘device that is used for viewing stereoscopic images.’  (“Stereoscope.” Merriam-Webster.com. Merriam-Webster, n.d. Web. 11 Feb. 2016). Stereoscopic Photos were first used in 1838. Charles Wheatstone was responsible for the creation of the Stereoscope and is an early example of Virtual Reality to which we are used to today.
