VIEWMASTERS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY
Oh my goodness, guys! I just found out some pretty fabulous news: Mattel is reissuing the 1980s/1990s cult classic of my youth—the Viewmaster—later this year. You may remember that I had a bunch of these at my wedding with photos of my hubby and me over the years and they were a huge hit with our guests.
Well now, instead of the traditional cardboard wheel with slide imagery, the new Viewmaster will use discs that pair with an app to provide a 3D immersive experience that you can explore, much like a virtual reality simulator. Cool, right? I love that they have thought through the historical use of the Viewmaster—an armchair travel device much like the original stereoscope—and updated it for the 21st century. I know this is supposed to be a "learning tool" for kids, but dang it, I can't wait to get my hands on one for myself this fall.
