adapted to the user; we can think of a phrase like “functional design”. Spare 
parts are useful, but are also an indication that the design is not perfect. 
Detachable accessories are a source of trouble. 
This paper was presented with the idea that the stereoscope deserves more 
attention from the designer and the user. We have proposed a consumer’s test 
and are looking forward to useful discussions from both parties concerned 
with this “simple” instrument. A publication on the measurements and the 
qualifications is in preparation. 
P. O. Fagerholm (Sweden) considered Mr. Hempenius’ specifications very valuable as a 
start for a discussion on the subject. The answer to his further questions was that, so far, no 
contacts had been made with the International Standardization Office or with Commission I 
of I.S.P. Asked whether he would actually start a classification along the described lines, the 
author said that the proposed specifications are first to be tested by the interpretation section 
of the I.T.C.
