Fly me to the moon - in 3D
This was my first 3D movie and "Fly me to the moon" in 3D is the first animated movie shot in 3D, so it was an evening of firsts. The story line was OK, the 3D experience was magnificent and the images were educational. I am sure that all the early teenagers in the movie theater today know more about the moon landing than their public school teachers.
We put on the 3D glasses for the movie. Afterwards, we brought the glasses home. I now need to find a way to dispose of them safely. I am too scared to put them on again. If 3D glasses make a movie scene come to life, what happens if you wear 3D glasses in real life? Do you see life in 6D? The thought will give me nightmares until I dispose of the glasses, safely.
I recall studying math in college. In one course we learned how to calculate the area and circumference of a sphere in the 5th and 6th dimension. I enjoyed the class and found it fascinating, and consequently did well. So well in fact, that I was able to always get the correct answer to calculate the area and circumference in n dimensions. That's right. Even in the 21st or 35th dimension, which is mind boggling. And the cool thing is that no-one can prove you wrong. How can anyone prove anything in the 35th dimension, as you can't even imagine 35 dimensions. That was twenty years ago and I still have not found a need to got beyond 3 dimensions.
Anyway, this is a fabulous movie. Enjoy it in 3D. And dispose of the glasses safely afterwards :)
P.S. I wonder how we can get PowerPoint slides in 3D? Wouldn't it be so cool to hand out 3D glasses to your audience for a PowerPoint experience instead of the boring text-laden slides we are exposed to? Let your imagination run wild and envision 3D PowerPoints. Maybe we will be lucky enough to experience this one day?
