The New York Public Library’s Stereogranimator


Another fine example of using new 3D web formats to bring earlier media into the spotlight, the NYPL’s relatively new Stereogranimator site lets you browse the Library’s collection of stereographs, animate them into .gifs or or 3D anaglyphs, then share them around the web. Inspired by a project by Joshua Heineman, and developed through NYPL Labs, the site is such an excellent way to make a part of the Library’s digitized collection more accessible, and allow users to interact with the materials in new ways. Below is my first attempt using the site: an image of a group of people playing a game. Enjoy!
