3-D Stereoview Photos, No Glasses Necessary

11Nov09

Pink Tentacle is running an article showing 3-D stereoviews from the late 19th – early 20th century in Japan during the Meiji period.

A stereoview consists of a pair of nearly identical images that appear three-dimensional when viewed through a stereoscope, because each eye sees a slightly different image. This illusion of depth can also be recreated with animated GIFs.

This beats wearing 3-D glasses any day I’ll say.
