More information about Final Jeopardy:
The View-Master is a well-known line of stereoscopes with corresponding “reels” (thin cardboard disks with seven color stereoscopic 3D pairs of photographs.) Introduced at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York, views of tourist attractions were most of the original reels; however, the line expanded to provide promotional reels for movies, TV shows, and even military training. The 2015 virtual reality View-Masters implemented the Google Cardboard VR platform and was accompanied by a mobile app.
