In the video below, you will see an example of a Facebook newsfeed being demonstrated in 3D. We went further and uploaded our Facebook page and it looks really awesome, take a look at the image above. You can see what your page looks like in 3D by going here – http://unr.ly/N7n9JD.

LG made their first Smart 3D tv in 2011 and if you’re lucky enough to have one then you’ll be able to view your Facebook page in 3D glory. 3D computer screens are becoming more and more common place, not so much from Apple, just yet, again, if you have one currently you will be able to view your 3D Facebook page in this way too.

3D technology is actually quite old, in fact the first patent for 3D image-viewing technology was issued in 1838, with Charles Wheatstone inventing the stereoscope to show 3D images. Interestingly, 3D glasses technology was actually first used in a full-length movie in 1922, this was for the film ‘The Power of Love’, unfortunately no known copies surive.

The future is definitely here and it will be very interesting to see where this new experiment by LG leads us next.
