The brain then interprets these two images together, and thus 3D perspective as we know it is born. The Oakes twins have created a machine that separates the images projected from each eye so the user can scan the world with one eye and draw it with the other, as if tracing onto reality. The results are remarkably realistic drawings which seem to appear effortlessly.

"Using multiple layers of clear glass, Canada based David Spriggs and Chinese born Xia Xiaowan, transform flat artwork into 3D sculptures. Viewers are treated to different shifting perspectives of the works based on where they stand in the art space. Spriggs work revolves around powerful explosive imagery, often resembling storms, cosmic blasts or firework like explosions. Xiawan's "spatial paintings," which often feature distorted figures, are drawn individually using colored pencil on tinted glass. Only when these pieces are combined on their floor racks do the images create the whole hologram like effect."
"I received a letter that ends, as far as I am concerned, the discussion about 3D. It doesn't work with our brains and it never will.
The notion that we are asked to pay a premium to witness an inferior and inherently brain-confusing image is outrageous. The case is closed."
Based on what we know about depth perception and the brain, do you agree with Roger?
This is an interesting site that makes small pieces of foam board look like full size buildings. What do we know about our perceptual system that can explain how this happens?
"The idea that we live in a hologram probably sounds absurd, but it is a natural extension of our best understanding of black holes, and something with a pretty firm theoretical footing. It has also been surprisingly helpful for physicists wrestling with theories of how the universe works at its most fundamental level."
The two images below are widely available on the web but not attributed to any particular source. In the top image, do you perceive the balls as resting on the checkerboard in a diagonal line? But in the bottom image, as the three balls on the right floating, each a little higher than the one before?
How do 3D televisions work to 'fool' our visual system into believing a flat surface is mulitidimensional?
