3D ColorCode 3D Game Online, PONGTRIS, a combination of Pong and Tetris


A recent commenter brought this browser-based Flash game, PongTris3D that uses the ColorCode 3D system to our attention. . . though they are careful to state that "This site has been developed internally by Gadget Productions and does not currently use the patented ColorCode system."

In order to see the 3D effect you'll need a pair of ColorCode blue-amber glasses. Even though their opening animation seems to depict a pair of red-blue glasses.

I have to admit that the notion of a patented system for an anaglyph format seems counter-productive to me. Open standards spread application development and adoption.


There's also fierce debate —raised voices, emails written in ALL CAPS — over the quality of blue-amber anaglyphs over red-cyan anaglyphs. One issue certainly is the the lower market penetration of blue-amber glasses and their current higher price over the de facto red-cyan standard.
