Remember those flimsy 3-D glasses that were so popular in the 80s? You don't need those anymore, at least not when you're in front of your computer. Piclens.com allows you to view images and photos in a 3D slideshow. After you install a plug-in to your browser, visit one of your favorite websites like Google image search, Flicker, MySpace or Facebook.

Once you see a special icon appear on the images, click on it. As you move your mouse, you'll be transported to the 3D wall! It literally brings a new dimension to your screen.
