Brian introduces the Lite OWL
Our new product, the LITE OWL, is now available for order. Designed by Brian May, the Lite Owl is so small, thin and light that it can be slipped into a pocket or worn round the neck with a cord so that it is always at hand. This can prove very useful when you are visiting a photo fair and you do not want to constantly put your viewer down and pick it up each time you are looking at cards, or to run the risk of leaving it behind. It is also very handy in exhibitions that display framed stereos as you can walk around and see every image in glorious 3-D without having to wait for your turn to use the provided viewers (if any).
The Owl Lite can be used to view modern or vintage stereocards but also stereo illustrations in books and magazines. You can also use the Lite Owl to look at side-by-side stereos, 3-D videos and even VR content on your smartphone. It is not bigger than the average smartphone (134x64 mm) and since it is only 3mm thick the phone and the viewer can fit snuggly into the same pocket.
The lenses of the Lite Owl are the same diameter as those of its larger counterpart and accommodate any interpupilar distance. Since it is hand held focusing is very easy and people with different types of vision can, after a few minutes of practice, find the viewing distance that suits them best, and if you are wearing glasses there should be no need to take them off.
The Lite Owl is bound to become your next best 3-D viewing friend.
