Viewmaster-style 3D sans Viewmaster

Thought I would try to create a 3D stereoscopic image. I held the camera up to my left eye, shot a photo, then moved it to my right eye and did the same. Here's how to see the (rather mundane) 3D:


(Warning: this might give you a headache or otherwise make you feel sick. So don't blame me — you have been warned.)


Get close to the screen (about 8") and let your eyes defocus until you see three soap dispensers.


Concentrate (don't focus) on the center image. It will start to gain more dimension, but it will still be blurry.


Slowly pull back from the screen until the center image starts to sharpen up.


Stop moving and enjoy the 3D.


Quit before long or you will get a roaring headache.
