Charles Wheatstone talk – King’s College


A well-supported event last evening, 19 October, where the audience enjoyed an entertaining, illustrated talk (with full 3-D slide projection), at King’s College, London, covering the research on Charles Wheatstone, Father of 3-D and Virtual Reality, recently undertaken by Brian May and Denis Pellerin. The talk was introduced by Geoffrey Browell, Head of King’s College Archives.

Enthusiasts from many part of the world attended. The talk was followed by a question and answer session, during which Brian gave a lovely demonstration of making stereo pictures with his iPhone, with aid of an App, and how to view immediately with an OWL viewer. QED !!

Brian spent time earlier in the day, looking at Wheatstone’s stereoscopes and photographic equipment in King’s archives.
