He stereosfopic on to write books on independent filmmaking and become a pioneer in the field of projected three-dimensional imagery. His technology is used to show 3D films on more than 25, theater screens worldwide. Lipton majored in physics at Cornell University after starting out in electrical engineering.

A self-described “mediocre student”, he only excelled once he found a field he loved.

Lipton now urges schools to be more “accepting of eccentric people with a different point of view because we are the people who make the difference. Lipton was 19 when he wrote the poem that was adapted into the lyrics for the song ” Puff the Magic Dragon “, performed by Peter Paul and Mary.

His career in stereoscopic display began to gel around In one early stint, he served as the “convergence setter” for the 3D film Rottweiler: Dogs from Helldetermining for each shot the optimal distance separating the two camera lenses.


Previewing a scene from the film, technical staff from Universal were impressed by the stereoscopic imagery, but little else.

He built a prototype of a flicker-free, field-sequential 3D display system and founded StereoGraphics Corporation in to fund development. The system worked by doubling the display rate of images, thereby overcoming a cijema inherent in 3D motion picture projection, where each eye views only half the available images.
