Textured Telly!

Is it a glimpse of the future or a view of the past? Whatever the case, you'll need a pair of 3D glasses to see it.

Get to a Sainsbury's as fast as you can to pick up a pair of stylish red-and-blue specs - modelled here by Bob Angell and Arthur Wooster, also known as the guys behind it all.

On Monday November 16th and Tuesday November 17th, Chanel 4 will air "The Queen in 3D". This is the first time that TV viewers will see 3D footage that Angell and Wooster filmed 56 years ago of the Queen's coronation ceremony. The documentary blends that 1953 footage with video of the Queen at a garden party that the pair captured just last year.

The combination of these retro icon glasses with 50's footage is bound to make us feel nostalgic. However, 3D TV might be a thing of the future. All around us, 3D display is becoming more popular. Imax theatres are becoming more normal, and the popularity of immersive video games is getting media companies to explore the commercial potential of 3D entertainment.

You can also find music videos and short films to use your Sainsbury's glasses with. Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5fmqkxcLFg to see JLS's video in 3D. If that's too racy for your innocent eyes, here's one that will please everyone - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qv9jI7lJzt0

Youtube viewers have caught on, so you know this is a big trend! 3D TV's day has finally come, proving that Angell and Wooster were far far ahead of their time.

We at Puff&Flock are personally proud of the two. One of them is Jo's father! Yes, Angells are few and far between, and it seems that they're also an innovative bunch. Will Jo's Solar Sanctuary be globally popular in 53 years? You'll have to check back in 2061 to find out!
