World's First 3D Website Online

Stereografix, a UK company has launched what is called the “first 3D website” but viewers will need a 3DTV, a compatible browser and the all-important glasses. A message on the site says this:

We think the Stereoscopic 3D Web is probably the world’s first 3D website. It is designed to be viewed exclusively on the new generation of Stereoscopic 3D HD TVsets

Stereografix founder Saif Chaudhry had this to say about the company’s achievement, “I don't think many people are even thinking this far ahead, and we've got a prototype already. It's not every day you can say you're first with something where the internet is concerned.”

I need lots of things in 3D

He went on to say, "I think there needs to be a lot more 3D TVs and computer monitors out there before it becomes mainstream, but people aren't just going to go out and buy these things unless they've got something to show on them."

Funnily enough, the website isn’t really the internet’s first 3D website. Youtube and the likes have been offering 3D content for a while now, but it is true that The Stereoscopic 3D Web is the first website that boasts of a 3D interface. It’s a shame that it requires 3D glasses to check them out, but the company’s planning on supporting Passive 3D TVs soon.
