Stereoscope meaning

stĕrē-ə-skōp, stîr-

Modern virtual reality equipment often uses a stereoscope that presents animated, computer-generated images to the eyes, rather than photographic images. &diamf3; A stereogram is a single pair of photographic images used in a stereograph.

A handheld viewer that provides the illusion of a 3D image by using two 2D images (stereo images). Dating back to the 1890s and only for still images, stereoscopes were the first attempts at going beyond 2D. For more details about 3D, see 3D visualization, anaglyph 3D, polarized 3D, active 3D, lenticular 3D, parallax 3D and 3D glasses.
