Paper Abstract

A surprising simple 2-D to 3-D visual display process utilizes a mechanical device to integrate four independent 2-D to 3-D visual processes. The quality of the resulting 3-D stereoscopic display approaches that of a "View Master" when ordinary color pictures from a magazine are viewed. The mechanical device which allows the independent processes to be applied is called the "Three-Dimensional Viewing Glasses" {3-DVG, U. S. Patent 4,810,057). An individual must first learn how to use the device; approximately four out of five persons with normal eyesight will experience the effect. Brief exposure to the device can lead to a heightened sense of depth perception when viewing subsequent pictures without use of the device. Familiarity with the process allows an individual to use only their fingers to generate a surprising good stereoscopic display.
