The praying mantis is the only known invertebrate with 3D perception, so, of course, scientists have created tiny 3D glasses and a tiny theater to test whether the same kinds of 3D techniques used for humans will work on them, too. Did the mantises perceive 3D? Were the glasses able to work? Did they stay for a second showing of Avatar? Jeff and Anthony answer all these questions and more.
