      Man, major headache machine. Imagine looking at amirror wearing this.
      Now that I think about it, this is actually exactly how some neurologists cure phantom pain or cramp in amputees...

      i wonder what the hemispheres would say

      It's like inverted binocular?
      But I don't get why you invert it.
      It's maybe to be able to see what a person can see in is right or left eye if you stay at the extremity of the triangle.
      Don't know give me some clue?

      I imagine you would see the same thing as you would without the device. Normally each eye sees the same image, just from a slightly different angle. The same thing is happening here.

      Also, since each image is being reflected twice it wouldn't be inverted. It's possible that your sense of depth or perspective might be screwy since the view from the left angle is being received by the right eye and vice-versa, but I think your brain would just gloss that over, i.e. I think the brain takes two images from slightly different angles to create a stereoscopic view of the world regardless of which eye is receiving a particular image.

      Oh no! Sorry, it's not quest! :) I have no idea what we get in the end. Sometimes I trying to imagine it but I still wonder how the brain would react on it.

      Ok so can you explain use is the purpuse of this diagram or drawing.
      Or may be you made it for fun?

      It's sound interessting.

      It's just for fun. Wanna construct it on free time.

      I believe that objects in the mirror would be closer than they appear.

      Great Image ! And an Interesting question .
      I didn't make it but i took a stereoscope and changed left & right image. So it would give the same result with you're looking engine.
      Result !
      Nothing changed the image and 3d info stayed the same.
      Wonderfull ...... But still puzzeling why nothing changed.

      The device shown reverses the views for the right and left eye, basically making all object appear inverted. Things that are convex, like a face, or an apple now appear to be concave, or curved inward. Also, because the focal points of the mirrors are further apart than your actual eyes, things will appear closer and smaller than they actually are.

      Always wanted to try some of these on, haven't come across any actual ones before though.

      I think you would see a big fat headache :D

      even slightest twist, change of distance of the focal points or wrong parallax causes heavy headaches according to (german only):

      @clheiny :-} this is almost certain :-}
