Owl VR Viewer Released That Works With a Smartphone

Brian May with the Owl VR viewer.

Queen guitarist and astrophysicist Brian May has designed and launched the plastic Owl VR kit that allows users to view 3-D images and footage from any smartphone while also giving them full access to their handset's controls at all times.

The viewer is a plastic frame that snaps into shape, with a pair of optical lenses at one end and a cardboard-backed magnetic strip that can be romved and used with other devices. Any smartphone can be mounted into the viewer. The phone's audio output remains available to connect to headphones or amplified sound.

The viewer is fully collapsible and a slider with full focus adjustment. May showed an animation of Bohemian Rhapsody and a dinosaur-based virtual game at the launch event in London. "The reason I created the Owl was to recreate Victorian stereoscopy. People get fatigued very quickly with other VR devices," said May. "They get frustrated that they can't reach their phone to get to their controls and they get sweaty with the eyepieces so I quickly realised that, in some ways, this was a better way of viewing virtual reality. The great thing is that any smartphone will work in Owl. Most devices on the market only accept certain types of smartphone, so this is unique."

May's Owl VR viewer is adapted from his patented Owl Stereo Viewer, released in 2009. It is available from the London Stereoscopic Company Limited.

Gog 3-D Blu-Ray is Must See 3-D™

The 3-D Blu-ray release of GOG is Must See 3-D™! Watch the 3-D restoration examples at the link below to see the amazing restoration work done by the folks at the 3-D Film Archive, which brought this lost 3-D film back to life.

Gog Blu-Ray art

Herbert L. Strock's GOG is available on 3-D Blu-ray from Kino Lorber. The 3-D Film Archive has updated it's web page about this 1954 science-fiction classic with loads of behind the scenes information, lobby card and poster images,

Bob Furmanek, founder of the 3-D Film Archive said, "Of all our restoration projects, GOG is the most rewarding for me personally. When I began my search for lost 3-D elements in the early 1980's, GOG was at the top of my want list. Through my archival work with Jerry Lewis, I got to know director Herbert L. Strock quite well. He was very proud of his work on this film and lamented the fact that it was lost in 3-D. After extensive research, I found the lost left side faded Pathe color 35mm release print in 2001. I tell the full story of this exciting discovery in the commentary track on the Blu-ray.After suffering through flat, black and white, full-frame 16mm prints for decades, it's a real thrill to finally see GOG restored as the filmmakers intended - in vibrant color, widescreen and 3-D!"

The Blu-ray features audio commentary by film historians Tom Weaver, Bob Furmanek and David Schecter as well as trailers. You can order the GOG 3-D Blu-ray online.

Here at 3-D Review Online Magazine, we agree that the film is a gem, with the restored color and widescreen giving viewers the feel of true 1950s screen treat. GOG receives an Editor's Choice "Must See 3-D™" Award.
