All you need is a pair of sunglasses to take advantage of this intriguing video that is both 2D and 3D, all at the same time. To get the 3D effect, simply place the sunglasses over your right eye alone. The technique is then referred to as the Pulfrich Effect.

To most effectively partake in the three dimensional viewing, you’ll want to watch the clip on a big bright screen in a bright room, while wearing dark sunglasses. Ultimately, this is accomplished by displaying two images on the same screen, using filters to show only one to each eye.

Now press play above to hear British YouTuber Tom Scott more eloquently detail the process, as well as to enjoy the Pulfrich Effect.

PUMA Unveils Game-Changing Fit Intelligence Technology

Published

on

PUMA today announced its latest footwear technology. Dubbed Fit Intelligence (Fi), it is the successor to AutoDisc, which launched just two years prior.

According to the German sportswear giant Fi “is designed to automate, fine tune, and adjust performance fit for PUMA footwear.”

With Nike building on its auto-lacing technology with the Adapt BB and adidas forging ahead with its accelerated footwear production at its SPEEDFACTORY locations, PUMA looks to bring its own, game-changing technology to market.

The first Fi footwear to launch is a running shoe that employs a micromotor that powers a cable lacing system. Simply gesturing up or down on the forefoot Fi module tightens or loosens the lacing system. Additionally, it comes with a smart sensing capability that adapts to the shape of the foot of each wearer.

Using an app, sneakerheads can monitor, adjust, and fine tune their Fi-equipped footwear.

“We have created a product that speaks to the future of sport which is life in motion. It’s fast and changing all the time,” said Charles Johnson, PUMA’s Global Director of Innovation.

Fi is the latest step in PUMA’s continued attempt to push the boundaries of performance and lifestyle product. In 1968 PUMA debuted the first laceless sports shoe with Velcro™ straps and followed that up in 1991 with the first cable closure, seen on the PUMA Disc.
