NY Public Library turns stereographs into animated GIFs, reminds your 3D TV of its roots

Digging your 3D TVs, video game consoles and laptops? Thank the past -- the New York Public Library is here to remind you that streographic entertainment has been blowing minds for over 100 years, and has the animated gifs to prove it. The Library recently introduced Stereogranimator, a web app that taps into the institution's large collection of historical stereographs and allows user to convert them into wiggling GIF animations and 3D anaglyphs. The program was inspired by "Reaching for the Out of Reach," a manual labor of animated stereographs started by San Francisco artist Joshua Heineman. The library currently has over 40,000 pairs of stenographic images just begging to be converted to depth-suggesting wigglepic. Interested? The link is below, friends -- go ahead and create your own psudeo-3D view of history. Too lazy to make your own? Fine, read on for a shaky and colorful look at an orange tree.

Weekly Webcomic Wrapup is back on the stage of history


SoulCalibur 5 comes out on Tuesday, so we thought we'd take this opportunity to take a look back at the very first tale of swords and souls, eternally retold. Soul Edge (Soul Blade in North America) was released in arcades in 1995 and on the original PlayStation in 1996 and '97. The game's cast of characters lacked many of the series' most (currently) notable faces, including Ivy, Nightmare and Astaroth.

It did, however, include many gameplay mechanics which were never featured in any of its sequels, most notably breakable weapons and a rock-paper-scissors-esque minigame that would occur whenever two moves of equal strength and priority collided. The game also took place 23 years before SoulCalibur 5, which means that series masochist Voldo is well into his mid 60s at this point. While that mental imagine marinates, check out our favorite comics from last week. Vote after the break!
