A History of Animation


The Stereoscope is another optical toy, which was invented by Charles Wheatstone in 1838.


The Stereoscope has two lenses mounted on a frame, which you can look through to view images. These images consist of two images which have been placed next to each other. When viewed, the images appear to be in 3D. This invention is also known as a stereo viewer or stereopticon.
