I took it off after half an hour. My eyes really started to hurt and water. Even though it was behind all my windows it still made me a little dizzy.

My link is very cool.. but it's a (tasteful) naked lady. You may not want to check it out at work/with the kids, but it's awesome if you follow the directions right. Be sure to literally cross your eyes, then let the image come together. Make sure your mouse/any stray windows aren't in the way.

It works well for me, which is surprising considering I can never normally do magic eye type things. It also turns my 12" PB into a 15 or 17" widescreen!

I think the only way to do it properly is with a stereoscope-- two lenses positioned slightly apart, at the same depth... since humans see depth by comparing the two images that come in, 3 inches apart, and analyzing the difference... if you take two pictures this far apart, at the same time, and then cross your eyes so that your left eye looks at the left image, and right eye looks at the right image,, your brain receives the image in true stereoscope and makes the depth adjustments in your own head. That's why it becomes 3D.

Of course, since it's easier to cross your eyes than to separate them, they reverse the left and right photos, but your brain doesn't realize.

You can, however, create simple examples with drawings, and if you were skilled you could probably digitally enhance a single photo into two that gave the illusion of stereoscope...

NICE link - best all month.

Personally 3D didn't work for me. My eyes hurt trying to do it (lately I cannot go full cross like I used to). BUT MY EYES felt MUCH better looking straight.

That girl is FINE!

Me I don't want to be crossed eyed looking at her, I wanna see DOUBLE!

I'd love to see what this would do in a room - it might make you totally nuts - maybe just one wall....

Ugh, I'm dizzy from all of this now - probably shouldn't have any more wine....
