Stereoscopy Day is an international celebration of the birth of stereoscopic 3-D
It will take place yearly on Tuesday 21st June, the anniversary of the day in 1838 when Sir Charles Wheatstone officially presented his stereoscope and demonstrated his theory of binocular vision.
Stereoscopy Day can be honoured in many ways to promote the history and present uses of stereoscopy. These can include sharing stereoscopic 3-D related posts on social media, such as stereo photos you’ve taken yourself or highlighting stereoscopic treasures within collections (don’t forget to add #StereoscopyDay), talks, presentations, meetings, interactive displays, workshops, exhibitions or special discounts.
No matter where you are in the world, you’re invited to join in and celebrate #StereoscopyDay
Stereoscopy Day is organised by the Brian May Archive of Stereoscopy, with the proud support of the London Stereoscopic Company. For details, please visit: www.stereoscopyday.com
