  • Active shutter: This method uses super fast glasses that switch between blocking one eye and then the other
  • Autostereoscopy (Glass-free 3D): This is like showing 3D images without needing any glasses.
  • Interference Filter (Super Anaglyph): This method uses specific colors of light for each eye.
  • Chromadepth: This technique uses a special film in the screen (like a tiny holographic film!)
  • Pulfrich Method: This method relies on how your brain processes light differently for each eye
