From being able to trick the eye with simple optical illusions and manipulations to turn of the century innovations, real immersive virtual worlds have been just out of reach – until now.

This device allowed used a pair of separate images to trick the eye and brain into believing they were seeing a large 3D image through a headset not totally unlike the modern designs we know today. But it was only from the mid 20th century that this area of tech really began to take off; we have the futurist mindset of the 1960s to thank for that.
