Digital 3-D Imaging Lab

A field trip student enjoys hi-tech 3-D views of Bennett photography.

The museum's special digital imaging exhibit uses the latest in 3-D stereo-imaging technology to put Bennett's stereo photographs in a powerful new perspective — and in a medium familiar to today's computer savvy students.

Specially designed liquid crystal spectacles allow visiting school groups to view stereo photos in 3-D on high-resolution monitors.

It might surprise students to learn that space-age technology designed for the Mars Pathfinder project has been harnessed to bring H.H. Bennett's eye-popping stereo photographs to life on a computer.
