Who are Aqua Vision 3D viewing devices for?

They are for Kids, Teenagers, Adults, And Anybody who wants to see Low-Cost, Super High-Quality 3D on any Flat-Screen that is Tablet-Size or Larger.

*All you have to do is "Just Add Water."

Yes, the active medium for image-light refraction through the lenses, of our 3D glasses, binoculars, and yes, 3D soda-bottle binoculars is simply H2O.

***Whether you donate just $1, or you donate up to a gift-level you will not only be helping forward a cool tech-gadget, but you will be part of a project that makes High-Definition, Fully Stereoscopic 3D Viewing affordable & accessible to Everyone***

*FULFILLMENT SCHEDULE:

*For the Glasses ($12 single to $18 gift set with 3D videos & prints):  

Gift 1: 3D Toy Glasses Prototype Replica
Gift 1: 3D Toy Glasses Prototype Replica

Thanks to the help of our collaborator (and manufacturer) of the glasses experimental project, PlayVisions Toy Co., we have access to thousands of units, so delivery of these, by mid-June is not an issue at all.  The simple $12 version comes with instructions for YouTube videos & suggestions for our favorites.  The $18 gift comes with several high-quality color stereoscopic prints included.

*For the Hand-model AquaVision Binoculars ($75): **THE MOST COMPATIBLE VERSION FOR 3D ONLINE VIDEOS**
 &Gift Set of Glasses AND Binoculars ($85):

Aqua Vision hand-built binoculars: *This is our easiest version to use, and the MOST Home 3D Video compatible. Water-filled binoculars that are "Poppy" i-Phone 3D camera compatible.
Aqua Vision hand-built binoculars: *This is our easiest version to use, and the MOST Home 3D Video compatible. Water-filled binoculars that are "Poppy" i-Phone 3D camera compatible.

 *This item has 2 separate lenses per each pair (largely what makes them more 3D video-compatible.)  We have plenty of lenses already produced. 
Per-each pair ordered on Kick starter, we will hand-make the plastic form (body) of the binoculars, a simple plastic heating & wrap-around design keeps it effective, efficient, and lends to an elegant design that we will continue with, when we go into production. *We are promising an August-end delivery date for up to 800 pair of these.  However, since we already have the lenses, and the hand-craft of the housings can be done with a "hands-on assembly-line" approach, they can be ready by early to mid August, or the last week of July.  *We intend to start shipping the first-ordered pairs by August 1st.

*For Aqua Vision 3D Handmade Juice-Bottle Binoculars & Binocs + Glasses Gift Level ($225) :

As these are hand-made single units, we will commit to the End of August as our delivery deadline for this unique deliverable.  *However, it is more likely that they will be ready, shipped, and received (by you) by early August. 
The making of these requires some specific laser and/or hot exacto cutting of specific angles, and then careful placement of acrylic/polycarbonate panels, with sufficient glue so ideally they don't leak but maybe a couple drops.  They come with images for viewing, and you have a fully functioning 3D Bottle-Binocuar one-of-a-kind handmade sample!  ...with a home-made look & feel... directly from the inventors : ) [The very latest you would receive the special hand-made items would be September 2014, in which case we would send the 3D Glasses prototype sooner.]

As these soda-bottle viewers are also hand-made single units, we will commit to the End of August as our delivery deadline for this unique deliverable. *However, it is more likely that they will be ready, shipped, and received (by you) by early August. The making of these requires some specific laser and/or hot exacto cutting of specific angles, and then careful placement of acrylic/polycarbonate panels, with sufficient glue so ideally they don't leak but maybe a couple drops. They come with images for viewing, and you have a fully functioning 3D Bottle-Binocuar one-of-a-kind handmade sample!  It may look home-made, but it works really well : )

[The very latest you would receive the special hand-made items would be September 2014, in which case we would send the Glasses portion sooner.]

*WHAT YOU CAN VIEW:

*Aqua Vision 3D Glasses:

3D Printed Media provided with the glasses, as well as a selection of recommended online video content (via YouTube).  *You can also learn how to take 'crossed format' side-by-side 3D with smartphone apps such as "3D Lite" smartphone app.

***Aqua Vision 3D Binoculars and Bottle-Binoculars:

*THE MOST COMPATIBLE VERSION FOR 3D ONLINE VIDEOS:

YouTube Videos: On YouTube *just search "YT3D" (..stands for "YouTube 3D") and pick "side-by-side" in their viewing menu.  ...Or you can pick specific 3D topics on YouTube, such as: "3d Movie Previews" and pick "side-by-side" in their viewing menu. (then set the menu to "parallel viewing" for AquaVision binocular use...)

Videos Provided with Binoculars: We provide a great mix of gymnastics, breakdance, and other fun 3D movie clips we have made, that come with the binoculars.

*Any 3D video you can create using GoPro cameras & their 3D kit or your i-phone with the "Poppy" device!  We contacted the creators of "Poppy 3D", who got their start on Kickstarter, and they were happy to have us mention our computer-screen viewing capability with Home 3D Videos filmed using the Poppy Device!  The difference between our invention and the Poppy invention is that their invention is for 3D video filming AND viewing on your i-phone screen, while our AquaVision inventions are specifically viewing on larger screens than i-phone, such as Tablets, Laptops, PC's, or on any Flat-Screen display such as a Flat-Screen TV.)

Future Plans:

With success on Kickstarter, we can begin manufacturing of our binoculars, and eventually the sports-bottle binoculars versions!  We would like to make our best-working design as-of-yet, our Handmade Version, ( the 2nd Kickstarter Gift-Level) ultimately available to the public at a reasonable price. This way, if you help support us, you will help make 3D more accessible to everyone.

*Our aim is to manufacture our next Design:  Handheld Aqua Vision 3D binoculars, in the United States (At a minumum, every component possible).  Furthermore, we Fully intend to manufacture All future products associated with bottle-binocular 3D viewing products in the United States.

*We hope to branch out into and All kinds of exciting 3D Video Creations, and presentations for Educational as well as Entertainment-related 3D and encourage everyone to make their own fun, cool 3D  videos that may now be supported with a New and Affordable, Highly Accessible 3D Viewing Method for Everyone

3D movies, and media can be made, by not just ourselves, the creators of AquaVision 3D, but also by Anybody who gets excited about side-by-side 3D Video content on any Flat-Screen tablet or computer.

it is Fun, Educational, and now perhaps more rewarding than ever with Aqua Vision 3D products to see, and share your 3D Video-Creations (with a GoPro 3D Kit, i-Phone Poppy, or Dual Side-By-Side Cameras) Real time, with anybody who wants to see theirs & others' fun 3D vidoes in Super High-Quality 3D on any Tablet, Laptop, PC, or Flat-Screen T.V.

Whether you are an Artist, Photographer, or Teacher of 3D microbiology, who needs an effective 3D viewing method to share your  side-by-side 3D Prints, or you are an Aspiring 3D Movie Future-Director who’s in Film-School and you want share content …or maybe just curious about something new, and fun such as making Home-Made 3D Videos, and want to share in 3D with all your Friends, and Family, this is high-quality 3D affordable, and accessible for everyone.

Risks and challenges

We have learned a lot during the manufacturing of an initial run of 3D glasses toys as an experimental concept. We have plenty of them available, which are copies of the the original prototype concept, effective & easy to use.

We will take and apply our knowledge and experience with specific optics, materials & manufacturing techniques, as well as knowledge from our 3D Glasses experiment & manufacture thereof, and discern carefully, planning to keep future manufacture in the United States for this, our next project: Hand-Held AquaVision Video-Compatible 3D Binoculars.

*The hand-assembled/hand-made Gift-versions seen at the front of our Kickstarter Photo, will be ready by July 2014. (Approx 600 to 700 quantity).

*Our biggest challenge ahead is to move forward on a limited-budget, and plan hopefully the entirety of future Aqua Vision 3D projects manufactured in the United States.

*We entirely hope to begin the development/ manufacture of BOTH Projects: Hand-Held Aqua Vision 3D Video-Compatible Binoculars AND 3D Bottle-Binocular versions, Simultaneously... Greatly increasing the
manufacturing being in the United States.

*Likely we will choose a manufacturer who can use B.P.A. free plastics, and mold in the U.S. such as Prime Products, Inc. (Texas, U.S.A.)

*Furthermore, we aim to directly-yet-carefully, pursue each level of manufacturing, building momentum, towards the ultimate goal being the development of significantly low-cost 3D Bottle-Binocular versions of the project!
