Easy Racers, Inc., is the longest-existing successful manufacturer of recumbent bicycles in the United States. This video was originally distributed on DVD in 2004. Subsequently, the founder Gardner Martin died but the company lives on, still making excellent bicycles in its factory-showroom in Freedom, California. The video explains a little about the history of Mr. Martin's company, how he got into making recumbent bicycles, why they are superior in comfort and speed, etc. It has a lot of historic photos and videos showing owners riding in many locations and the Gold Rush fully enclosed bicycle which set many speed records.

I used CyberLink PowerDirector 10 video editor to convert this ordinary DVD into a 3D version. The conversion algorithm in PowerDirector didn't make a great 3D effect (even though I set it for maximum 3D depth) but it does have 3D in a lot of the scenes. See for yourself. It's not like a 3D stereoscopic video taken that way from the start using stereoscopic cameras, but it's interesting to see how the flat videos can be enhanced by software. I have no idea how software can figure out what to put in front of what, but somehow it does. Watch in 720p for best effect. Click the gear icon to set the resolution.
