Yes, you heard it right. The 3D era will get stopped as the technology is growing and has come up with a promise that soon the use of 3D glasses will stop. So what will happen? Will all the 3D films be stopped? Or will no one make a 3D film? The answer is technology has come up with something that 3D glasses will soon be your past. CSAIL with the help of Institute of Science, Israel has come up with display technology that there will not be any additional hardware people need to wear for watching 3D movies.

Named as ‘Cinema 3D’, this technology works encodes the barriers in such a way that the views will see a parallel barrier which will be tailored according to their position. This will be replicated with the help of lenses and mirrors across the theater. The Institute says that this can be done only if the viewer seated at a limited distance from the movie screen. The project is still work in progress. For the complete view of the 3D movie, a combination of 50 lens and mirrors should be used to get the 3D effect. If all goes well, the technology will soon give you a 3D experience without wearing glass.

She played the female rebel twice in the saga, and recently returned as a high ranking General in The Force Awakens.

While Leia placed her in the public eye, it was not the only role she played.

Her life was as bold and colourful as her personality with her romantic partners including co-stars and other artists.
