I was planning on putting this blog up in a months time or so. But I thought I'd share this with you now!

And now for something completely different! In the last couple of days I have registered to these paysites, which give you money if you click on ads. Usually you get anywhere from 0.01 - 1 cent (US) / click.

* Earned on first day: 3 cents

* Earned on first day: 7 cents

* Earned on first day: 4.7 cents

* Earned on first day: 5 cents

* Earned on first day: 0.9 cents

* Earned on first day: 6.8 cents

* Earned on first day: 3.5 cents

* Earned on first day: 8 cents

* Earned on first day: 4 cents
* You have to wait 30 days before you can start advertising with a banner which has real-time stats.

readbud - get paid to read and rate articles

* Earned on first day: 64 cents
* Just read and rate short articles (read in 1-5 mins)
* Earn anything from 1 cents to 20 cents per article you read.

I will post another blog update in about 1-6 months on this subject. To see and hopefully show with proof that you can make money out online.

Oh and by the way, the ones I recommend you use, if you don't have a lot of time/day are:

* I really recommend using gagabux, because one can view a lot of ads/24h period. My max is 50 ads (= 50 cents).

- One draw back is that you have to be an upgraded (silver ($9/month), gold or diamond) member to withdraw your money.

If you have any questions, please post in the comments section. I might update this blog post or create a new one.

How does 3-D work?

"Why can you look at an object in the real world and see it as a three-dimensional object, but if you see that same object on a television screen it looks flat? What's going on, and how does 3-D technology get around the problem?
It all has to do with the way we focus on objects. We see things because our eyes absorb light reflected off of the items. Our brains interpret the light and create a picture in our minds. When an object is far away, the light traveling to one eye is parallel with the light traveling to the other eye. But as an object gets closer, the lines are no longer parallel -- they converge and our eyes shift to compensate. You can see this effect in action if you try to look at something right in front of your nose -- you'll attain a lovely cross-eyed expression.
The secret to 3-D television and movies is that by showing each eye the same image in two different locations, you can trick you brain into thinking the flat image you're viewing has depth. But this also means that the convergence and focal points don't match up the way they do for real objects. While your eyes may converge upon two images that seem to be one object right in front of you, they're actually focusing on a screen that's further away. This is why you get eye strain if you try to watch too many 3-D movies in one sitting.
How do you show two different images that appear to only be one? It's all in the lenses." [Source]

I think this explains very well how 3-D works. 

When the first 3-D TVs were out in the stores, I tried watching a couple with lenses. It was horrible. The refresh rate on the lenses were so low, that the picture looked jerky and gave me a head quite quickly. 

But the the new 3-D TVs & lenses which support 120 Hz (60 Hz per lenses), should be a lot smoother to look at/through. I will try to confirm that this week. Will see if I have time.

What do you guys think about this 3-D technology? Do you think it will become a standard in everyones homes, eventually?

3D TVs/Monitors

Now that 3D TV and monitors are available worldwide, I thought it would be a good idea to take a closer look at how they work (might update this post at later times, or write a new post, depending on how relevant my next posts are going to be).

So basically to be able to see movies, tv series etc in 3D, you need to have a glasses.

  • With lenses
    • Anaglyphic 3D (with passive red-cyan lenses)
    • Polarization 3D (with passive polarized lenses)
    • Alternate-frame sequencing (with active shutter lenses)
  • Without lenses
    • Autostereoscopic displays, sometimes referred to commercially as Auto 3D
Autostereoscopy is any method of displaying stereoscopic images without the use of special headgear or glasses on the part of the viewer. It includes two broad classes of displays: those that use head-tracking to ensure that each of the viewer's two eyes sees a different image on the screen, and those that display multiple views so that the display does not need to know where the viewers' eyes are. 

  •  Examples of autostereoscopic displays include: 
    • parallax barrier 
    • lenticular 
    • volumetric 
    • electro-holographic 
    • light field displays.
I will get into more detail on how 3D TVs work. But I'm really busy with real life at the moment.
