	The nu3dvu glasses are still available (now your choice,
plastic or wooden) from:
	Nu 3-D Vu Co.
	71 E. 28th Ave.
	Eugene, OR  97405

	(503) 465-4930

	Aldrich also sells something that looks comparable, 
although I haven't actually seen them (Cat. number Z15,675-2,
retailing for about $40 US).

	A machinist at Chicago actually fabricated a mirror system
that attaches to the monitor of the PS-390, where the mirrors
are on a massive metal arm that swings up and down on hinges.  This
works very nicely, but I advise strongly against attempting to 
duplicate, since on at least one occasion the mirrors have fallen
on my head as I leaned in to peer at some molecular detail...

	And of course, the Xtal-Eyes make all this side-by-side
stuff seem silly and obsolete.  If you can afford them.

	Good luck!
