3D news of the weird kind:
Praying Mantises Given World's Tiniest 3-D Glasses
Image

... British neuroscientists recently outfitted praying mantises with a little pair of 3-D glasses. They wanted to see if the insects can be tricked by 3-D images — like humans watching a blockbuster in 3D. ... Praying mantises have stereoscopic vision, unlike most invertebrates.To conduct the vision testing, the scientists attach what the university says are the world’s tiniest pair of 3-D glasses to an insect using beeswax. Then the mantis is placed in front of computer monitor that displays images in 3D. ... Afterward, the glasses are taken off and the mantis goes back to a room where it gets fed.
Dinner and a movie, eh? ;)

I read that this morning in the British media and was going to post on here but saw Geekmaster had beaten me to it. :D

That Video is a great find.... I wonder if there's a Preying Mantis version of Kickstarter? it's bound to be the next big thing in the insect world. :lol:

Coolest looking praying mantis I've seen! I wonder if he complains that the glasses look dorky?

Wow!!! That's very disturbing for all the praying mantis community. Anyway, it looks really funny. Like some character from Dragon Ball :)
