The most common technique currently used to achieve the stereoscopic imaging and the 3D effect in visual media combines the method of displaying distinct offset images, so that, when viewed through special stereoscopic eyeglasses, these images are perceived separately by the left and the right eye, thus allowing for the perception of three-dimensional depth. The method is widely employed by modern movie theaters throughout the world, and has been gradually introduced as an extension of home theater media, thus gaining further exposure.

However, this system for all it’s popularity has many shortcomings, the first of which is the requirement to constantly wear stereoscopic eyeglasses. Most available models are often of considerable size and bulk, and thus inconvenient to carry and use on daily basis.
