3D screen shots?

You all remember Magic Eye right?
(For those of you that don't
http://www.magiceye.com/faq_example.htm)


Couldn't Nintendo or other companies use the same type of concept to show off 3D screenshots of games? They could have the two images for each eye right next to each other and you cross your eyes until the two images meet. Your brain will merge them together and you'll see the 3D effect. The only problem I see with this is that some people royally suck at seeing the Magic Eye images and would have the same trouble viewing the 3D screenshots. But for us that can see it easily, I think it would be awesome.

The proper phrase is "couldn't care less". "Could care less" means you care.

The 3DS image are stereoscopic.

Crosseye 3D is the reverse, and it's not as simple as just switching the two frames, because then the angles of convergence are facing outward.

It would definitely work.

Some people have done it already.

I have never, ever gotten those magic eye pictures to ever work. And I have 20/20 vision.

Magic Eye is not the same as Crosseye images.

Most people can view Crosseye 3D images. It's not particularly good for your eyes though, and doing it for any amount of time longer than 20 seconds will give you headaches and trouble focusing on regular images for a while.

Magic-eye however is the reverse, it's NOT easy for people to do, and practicing is actually VERY healthy for your eyes.

20/20 is average, not above average like most people think.

Anywho, I love magic eye stuff.

Is like 30/20 vision make you be able to see better then 20/20 vision? And do you need a certain vision depth to make these magic eye pictures work?

Now that I'm not sure of.
Just know that 20/20 isn't the best.

I also have come to realize those images posted earlier make my eyes blurry. lol
Still feel weird. XD

30/20 would be slightly worse, the lower the number the better. I'm pretty sure it means at 20 feet you see what's at 20 feet. If the first number is lower, it would mean at 18 feet away you see what's 20 feet away, if that makes any sense.
