Google is partnering with Mattel to reboot the iconic View-Master stereoscopic 3D photo viewing device. Instead of static photos with circular film reels, however, the new View-Master offers an immersive digital experience that puts people inside 360° “photospheres.”
If you grew up enjoying 3D stereoscopic photos using a View-Master, then this picture frame is sure to cause a pang of nostalgia. It’s a giant photo frame for your wall that’s shaped like the paper slide holders used by the popular children’s toy. It’s sold by online shop Unkl347, but you might be hard pressed to find it in stock.

New York-based design consultancy Mélangerie helps customers make custom View-Master wedding invitations that display photos in full-color Kodachrome. All they need are 7 high-res photos and a short snippet of text for each one. They’re pretty pricey though: 100 invites will set you back $3450.
