Summer of MeTV Uses View-Master® Themed Commercial

MeTV is using a View-Master® themed commercial to promote its summer television lineup the network is calling "The Summer of MeTV". An animated reel spins out of the "MeTV Viewer" to show many of the popular TV shows from the past. Too bad MeTV doesn't produce an actual souvenir reel. Sadly, only M*A*S*H* was among these shows to have actual View-Master® reels.

Nishika pinback button.

It’s a story that involves more than just an odd-looking camera. During its short rise and subsequent fall, there was a host of misguided tech, bankruptcies and federal investigations – all in the name of uncovering ‘the next Polaroid’. The camera’s premise hinged on a four-lens design that captured four simultaneous images from slightly different perspectives, which would then be used to create 18 oscillating 3-D prints from a 36-exposure roll of film. Read the full article at Gobe Magazine.

The current exhibit at 3-D Space "Not Just A Kid's Toy: The Art, Science, and History of the View-Master®" includes a display of several original clay figures used to produce View-Master® reels.
