Wiggle Stereoscopy

Some visual fun...

Wiggle Stereoscopy

It's a form of pseudo-3D in which constantly shifting parallax creates the illusion of depth.

Came across a few more samples of wiggle stereoscopy... :)

Posting them separately across five posts, so that they don't "interfere" with one another

The incredible thing about this, is that the illusion of depth is maintained even with one eye closed (particularly obvious in the B&W street photo).

I can see how this sort of thinking may be used in the future to enhance the vision of those who have lost an eye. Watch out Peter Pan, Captain Hook's swordsmanship is likely to improve.

:nod:

A similar sort of imaging is the constantly rotating 3D model, often used for presentations of molecular models...

...and anatomical diagrams...

But the 'wiggle' is perhaps better because of the depth effect that it generates, and more versatile because it more easily lends itself to photographing scenery.

The best of the 'wiggle' images are those that employ four frames (rather than just two) for a "smoother" shift in parallax. The animation is typically six frames (1, 2, 3, 4, 3, 2) cycled infinitely.

Those creating the wiggle scenes are using this sort of camera...

(From here)

...originally developed back in the '80s for creating lenticular '3D'

I can see how this sort of thinking may be used in the future to enhance the vision of those who have lost an eye. Watch out Peter Pan, Captain Hook's swordsmanship is likely to improve.
