The toy manufacturer Fisher-Price has announced a new partnership with Spatial View that will bring back some of the 3D photos from the View-Master back to life in digital format for 3D-dnabled devices. The digital 3D content will be available through a specialized digital content store expected to be available in late Q1 this year that will offer a selection of titles consisting of national parks, travel, nature, and history that will be sold in packs of 18 to 21 images for $1.99 USD.
Since 1939, View-Master images have brought the world to life for children and adults alike through its iconic reels and viewers. With over 1.5 billion reels sold, the View-Master image archive contains thousands of images covering a century of pop culture, current events, nature, science, history and travel.
The access to the digitized View-Master reels will be available through Spatial View’s 3DeeSlide accessory for the iPhone 4/4S, allowing users to see View-Master images in 3D, without 3D glasses. Support for 3D-capable Android smartphones, Windows PCs, and 3D TV platforms is also expected to follow after that.
