The Wonder Of 1950's Technology: The 3-D TV Headset
Think virtual reality is cool? Here, from the pages of Life Magazine, is the way to watch TV and escape your humdrum existence: use the patented 3-D headset! Here's inventor-publisher and Godfather of Science-Fiction (not the Godfather of Soul), Hugo Gernsback, doing just that!
The television audience could see Uncle Miltie in drag in multiple dimensions!
Just imagine - Dagmar as you've never seen her before!
Watch Bwana Devil on TV - in 3-D and in THRILLING COLOR!
Add a second pair of the patented 3-D glasses and see Bwana Devil in 4-D!
Take LSD with two or three pairs of 3-D glasses atop your 3-dimensional TV headset and see Bwana Devil in 5-D! Then, keeping that headset on, listen to the album Sunrise In Different Dimensions by Sun Ra & His Arkestra.
