Day 13 Kenneth J. Dunkley – 28 days of Black History in Technology

Mr. Dunkley created Three Dimensional Viewing Glasses (3-DVG).  His invention displays 3-D effects from regular 2-D photos without any type of lenses, mirrors or optical elements.  As I did some research for this African American’s Invention, I had to dig deep.  He didn’t invent 3D.  In fact this patent was not submitted till April 18, 1986 Patent #4,810,057

Dunkley didn’t create 3D but he did create 3D Viewing Glasses which allowed you to look at a picture and the 2D image would appear to be in 3D.  I can’t seem to find a really good picture of a demo.  I attached a copy of the PDF that shows the device.

Dunkley discovered that blocking two points in a person’s peripheral vision will cause an ordinary picture to appear 3-Dimensional.

A true to life working sample is what we are looking for, let us know if you run across a sample.
