How do I make 3-D glasses?

Making anaglyph glasses is pretty simple. All you need are two colored filters that are complementary colors. Typical anaglyphs have you put the red filter on the left eye and the cyan filter on the right eye. You can get these filters from any theatrical supply company (look in the Yellow Pages under 'theatrical supply'). We recommend Roscolux #26-Light Red and #77-Green Blue. This filter material is available in 20"x24" sheets and costs about $6.50 per sheet. Obviously you can make over one hundred pairs with your two sheets! Cut out cardboard eyeglass frames and tape the filters over the eye holes. If you need a template for the glasses, click here. Simple!
