3D Spies of WWII


For all of you holography fans, if you didn’t get a chance to see the movie, 3D Spies of WWII, check it out.  With 3D graphics, NOVA reveals how the Allies used special aerial photos to deal a dire blow to the Nazi rocket program. 



PBS did an excellent job of showing how 3D stereoscopes helped analysts uncover hidden rocket and missile sites.  Looking at an aerial photo of a 2D rocket revealed a spot of white; seeing a 3D photo revealed a 45 foot rocket.  At the time, the German V1 missile was the leading edge of technology.  3D analysts in London got to see it aimed directly at them.  A real ah-ha moment for the British.  3D stereoscopes exposed details that were previously invisible and allowed the British military to accurately select targets and assess damage after bombing. 

Watch Sneak Peak: 3D Spies of WWII on PBS. See more from NOVA.

You come away with the value 3D terrain analysis and high technology played in identifying threats and the decision-making to countering those threats.  It makes you appreciate how vital 3D technology is to the freedoms we enjoy.
