This idea comes from the way they used to film 3D movies,
with two cameras spaced far apart from eachother so that
two shots could later be resolved by movie watchers
through different-color-lense 3D glasses.
These glasses would consist of 4 mirrors, two placed right
of the eyes at a 45 degree angle to the line of sight -
like a wedge with the edge pointing toward the nose, and
placed about a foot out on either side of the head, again at
45 degree angle but this time facing the other direction,
forwards, so that light
from in front of the viewer would be reflected by the wide
set mirrors, then hit the wedge shaped mirrors and be
reflected into the
eyes of the glasses wearer. The effect would be that the
glasses wearer would see the world as if his or her eyes
set 2 feet apart. Resolving these two images would give the
world an exagerated 3D feeling I imagine.
By the way it's much easier to explain this idea by saying
"You could have 3D glasses with mirrors here (put your
hands in a wedge shape infront of your nose) and here
(move your hands to the right and left one foot each)".
Does anyone know of a picture blog that will take my
Macintosh's gif(QT) and jpeg2000(QT) file formats?
||And what is the use of this?
||Artillery and anti-aircraft-gun spotters used to use a widget like this to judge range. So it's been done.
||Perhaps it hasn't been done as wearable glasses. As standard glasses wearer, I'd say this idea is a good way to get your head banged-up pretty often.
||It makes me feel pukey and walleyed just thinking about it. Might be fun though.
||//And what is the use of this?\\ Who cares? +
||Essentially two horizontal periscopes, one for each eye. I'd be interested to try one of these.
||I did experiments with exaggerated 3d and - it was
successful. It makes the world look smaller and "like
a model". Conversely, smaller makes you feel smaller
(and the world larger). I'm sure this principal is
applied where-ever control over stereoscopic vison
||Bizarrely, i have the same obsolete macintosh file
format dilema as you.... did... 5 years ago...
