The history of the 3D imagery began at the time of the start of the photography. The credit goes to David Brewster, who invented stereoscope in 1844 which could take three-dimensional images. The technology was used to take an image of Queen Victoria, and thus it became popular the world over. The stereoscopic cameras were even used in World War II.
The second instrument that came out to take the history of 3D further ahead was called Kinematascope. This was a stereo animation camera that released the first 3D movie in 1915. Further down the roads, the first color movie in 3D was released for public viewing in 1935. This is where the progress of the technology paused as after this for more than a decade there were no improvements in this field.
The technology made a comeback in the 1950s. During this time, the movies and TV had gained more popularity than ever. Several movies during this time were released in 3D, but not all theatres had the resources to host a three-dimensional movie screening. The technology has reached new heights in the 1960-70s. Several improvements came about in the technology namely the Space-Vision 3D and anamorphic lens. They had improved the viewing experience with clearer pictures and better visuals than ever before.
In 2000, all of the big movie studios started using the technology in their works. In the present day, the 3D technology is available in any of the shows, movies or games that you want to enjoy.
The Use Of 3d Technology Changing The Face Of Healthcare
The use of 3D printing has brought significant changes in the world of medicine. The cost of 3D printing has significantly come down now than what it was earlier making the use of the technology more widespread. The most common use of 3D printing is for the treatment of the burn victims. The 3D printed skins are grafted on the burn victims and to cure the lung diseases of the children. The 3D printed implants are made in such a way that they grow as the kids grow. A lung problem is frequently seen in young adults and babies where the tiny airways in the lungs are prone to collapsing. The 3D printed splints are grafted on those places to make sure there is no harm on the airways in the lungs.
The plastic surgery world benefits a lot as the facial prosthetics are made using the printing technology. The application of 3D technology is held as being useful even in the treatment of cancer. The use of the technology has extended to the making of the 3D-printed casts that heals bones quicker than the regular casts used to treat fractures and other problems of the bones. The ability to modify the grafts and casts according to patient’s needs is the major benefit of 3D medical technologies. Further research will reveal more facets of these techniques.
Most of the 3D printed technologies are at an experimental stage. There will be a sea change and development in the medical scenario as these experiments become successful.
