Nothing's lamer than watching a 3-D movie in a mere two dimensions. Get the full 3-D experience with these simple steps.

Step 1: Look for anaglyph images
Start collecting anaglyph -- or red and blue -- 3-D pictures, comic books, DVDs, and web videos, so that you'll have something to view through your new 3-D glasses. This type of 3-D glasses won't work with all 3-D images.

Step 2: Pop the lenses out
Pop the lenses out of the plastic sunglasses. The sunglasses will be the frames for your new 3-D specs.

The cheaper the sunglasses, the easier the lenses will pop out.

Step 3: Make the new lenses
Make the new lenses by tracing around the old ones on the plastic sheet with the black marker.

Step 4: Color the patterns
Color one of the new lenses red and the other one cyan.

Make sure to color them on just one side, and as evenly as possible. You don't want smudges or smears ruining your 3-D vision.

Step 5: Construct the glasses
Cut the new lenses out. Dab some super glue on the inner rims of the frames, and pop the red lens into the left eye and the blue one into the right. Now kick back and enjoy that third dimension in style!

Did You Know?
Did you know? The first 3-D short films were shown in New York in 1915.
