Kenneth J. Dunkley was born in New York in 1939. He is best known for inventing three-dimensional viewing glasses, or 3-DVG, his patented invention that displays 3-D effects from regular 2-D photos without any type of lenses, mirrors or optical elements.
While researching human vision, Dunkley found that by blocking two points in a human’s peripheral vision, he could transform two-dimensional visuals into a three-dimensional space, creating a unique visual effect. He filee a patent in 1986 for his 3-DVG glasses.
In addition to his 3-DVG invention, Dunkley is a visual pioneer in the field of holography. At the Museum of Scientific Discovery in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, he has conducted visual effects workshops for several years, as of 2015.
Dunkley has a Master's degree in physics, and he has taught college level science and physics. He managed the home sales office of Princeton Applied Research Corporation and Princeton Instruments. He also directed Pennsylvania state technology contracts and proposals. His formal technical background includes electro-optics, lasers, spectroscopy and holography, in addition to computers and data communications. In addition to a background in nanotechnology education, Dunkley is an experienced Microsoft and robotics applications trainer. Dunkley is currently the president of the Holospace Laboratories in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania.
