Despite multiple generations plagued by lacklustre sales, Snap continues to pump out more versions of its try-hard Spectacles. But now, thanks to the release of some limited edition Gucci-themed Spectacles 3, we’re faced with an interesting question. What’s worse, the new Spectacles themselves, or the short film Snap made to promote them?

It seems Snap just can’t give up its obsession with techy camera glasses. That’s because after losing a buttload of money trying (and failing) to sell its first Spectacles, and later following up with a second model to little fanfare, Wednesday, Snap announced the Spectacles 3, which are somehow uglier than ever and come with a serious price tag.
When it comes to manga and anime adaptations, 3D has a bit of a bad rap - sometimes for good measure, when it’s used as a clumsy shorthand around traditional animation. But the latest adventure for Japan’s most iconic gentleman thief (sorry, Joker) wants to buck that trend by being downright bloody gorgeous.
Fields as diverse as video game development, visual effects, and industrial design all rely on 3D software, but the tools used to make it remain firmly stuck in two-dimensions. For the past few years, Magic Leap’s mixed reality goggles have been heralded as the missing link between the digital 3D world and the real one we live in, but it’s Wacom who’s working on turning the hardware into a next-generation creative tool, and not just another expensive way to play games.
With its high price, outdated specs, lacklustre holographic screen, and absent mod support, Red’s Hydrogen One may have been the biggest smartphone flop of 2018. However, on the last day of the year, Red teased that something could be coming in 2019 that could potentially redeem the over-hyped handset.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day is one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time. And for one week only, starting August 24, it's back in cinemas, converted into 3D by James Cameron himself. And we're giving you the chance to get your own private screening, with 20 mates, in a cinema in your capital city.
Video: Using strong magnetic fields and radio waves, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines let us peer inside the human body as if it were sliced into thousands of layers. The same effect has been achieved here, letting you fly through the massive Sofa Hotel in Istanbul. But do they make MRI machines that big?
Reduce, re-use and recycle are words to live by as we try to minimise humanity's demand for our planet's natural resources. But instead of sending your empty soft drink bottles off to be recycled, scientists from the Hasso Plattner Institute in Germany want you to build everything from chairs, to boats, to outdoor shelters with them.
Over the course of 12 years, the HiRISE camera has been photographing the Red Planet inch-by-inch from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. Around 50,000 still images have been taken and anyone can check out hi-res stereo versions online. A Finnish filmmaker has spent three months converting the photos into a short video that allows us to fly over Mars in spectacular fashion.
Back in 2010 Sony Australia's Paul Colley forecasted that a large percentage of Australian viewers would have 3D televisions by 2014. In the same year, industry pundits such as Simon Murray predicted that sales of 3D TVs were set to increase in the years to come.
But others were heralding the death of 3D TVs and this year the remaining major manufacturers, LG and Sony, have said they will no longer produce 3D-capable televisions. So despite all the repeated push and positive predictions, what went wrong with 3D TV?
Video: There's no shortage of footage showing what life aboard the International Space Station is like, but unless you've had a chance to spend some time there, the ISS' sprawling and ever-expanding layout can be confusing. To help make better sense of it, the European Space Agency has created a narrated video tour of the space station -- and it's in 3D.
