Video: “The world’s fastest 3D film”

Filmed via two gullwing SLS AMGs doing a buck sixty around the Isle of Man. (I’m getting flashbacks to a classic Mac ad.)

The making-of video is genuinely fascinating, too:

    he sure got generous with some of those edges!

    I think that this has a ways to go before I would call it 3D. Maybe it is just me, but I am missing the feeling that I want, or should feel.

    [I assume that we’re simply seeing the 2D version here, and that experiencing the 3D version would require different playback technology (probably involving special glasses). –J.]

    It’s a teaser for the 3D version, but certainly it is misleadingly labeled.
    Though 3D is certainly possible on YouTube

    I tested a Sony TV recently, fairly impressive if you like cardboard cut out style 3D which ironically seems to have less depth than traditional 2D films. It also needed glasses, that are intrusive, that only work with Sony TVs and are very expensive to purchase as well [over £100!]. This could cause more problems than VHS/Beta/BluRay/HD DVD wars as at least with those issues everyone in room could view films/programme easily as long as TV was turned to channel device was connected to.
