Although it doesn’t use anaglyphs, James Cameron’s Avatar is a work of art made using stereoscopic cameras. Instead of colored lenses, viewing Avatar requires polarized lenses. Polarized lenses work the same way as the colored lenses however- each eye is shown a slightly different view.

Virtual reality content is another example of stereo images being used to make media. Content ranges from games to short films to music videos. Really any digital content that has before been viewed in 2D can now be viewed in 3 dimensions. Unfortunately, I can’t include any VR content here, but if you have access to a virtual reality headset, I recommend checking out some of the videos at It’s really, really cool.

All of the examples above use stereo images to achieve the illusion of depth. Adding the third dimension to media makes it more life-like.
