Oooooh 3D!

When Hugh Hefner launched Playboy back in the 50s, he hired a photographer to shoot two nude women in 3D. But the price of bundling anaglyph glasses with the magazine was too high. This week, Hef’s dream becomes reality…

In an effort to bolster low readership, the June edition of Playboy, on newsstands this week, will feature centerfold Hope Dworaczyk in good old fashioned blue and red (anaglyph) 3D. And if you unfocus your eyes in just the right way, her skin tone may match that of any proud Pandora resident.

Hefner, not himself a fan of the new wave of 3D movies, frames Playboy‘s role amidst the Avatar effect simply: “What would people most like to see in 3D?…Probably a naked lady.” [MSNBC]
