I'm not sure if this is worthy of its own thread, and I generally try to stay away from posting too much off-topic stuff, but since if you post in an old thread it will no longer go back up to the recent threads list, I decided it was. I know this is no new concept but I wondered if anyone else has tried it.

Stereoscopy is the process of combining two 2D images to form one 3D image. You take two images at two slightly different angles from the subject and put them backwards, so that the image at the angle your right eye would normally see the subject at is on the left and vice versa. If you don't get it check out the Wikipedia article on it. http://en.wikipedia....iki/Stereoscopy

I created one and it's really quite easy. It doesn't seem to involve as much calculation as you might expect to get the angles good enough. This is the only one I've done so far. I know it's boring but it was mainly just a test. Look at these two pictures and cross your eyes. You should then see one 3D image in the middle of two 2D images. The fan and the backpack to the right of it stand out the most.


So, has anyone else tried making these kinds of pictures or any other interesting things like that when they were bored?
