For some reason some people have a really hard time making them work. Judging by this thread I would say a good percentage.

I've done enough of them now I can refocus my eyes on command, with out having to back away from the screen.  (For those of you having trouble, try looking through the screen/page.  Focus on a point a few inches behind your computer, maybe that will help.(?))

This is the method I use for this 3d images and it is very simple, I can watch the 3d pic at will, it takes me about 2 seconds.


Start by putting your index finger about a foot from your eyes. You will see your finger as either a double "ghost" image or a single normal image, depending how you focus.

Now try changing between both views at will. If you can do it, you´re  almost there.

Go to the 3d picture, you´ll notice that there are patterns that always repeat, all 3d images are like this. So in the picture that has dice, see how it repeats over and over.

To see the 3d picture, start watching one dice, then refocus your view so the image duplicates. That way, the real image and the "ghost image" will fit one on top of the other. The 3d image should appear.

not exactly sure (i'm not always in control of my mind lol). although maybe just about what happens if they didn't find him. also about how so many people banded together just to find him.

Can I hijack this thread to post a thought provoking vid? I thought it would be too mainstream to make a new topic for it.

Massi - WTF? It's called a sling. You use it to throw rocks farther and faster than you could otherwise. That's all.

I watched that video Masi, that was hilarious man. Made all the more funny if you have actually known people like that. LOL

Oh man...   Grin  Well...here's to not taking ourselves too seriously right? Cheers.

Here's a good pic, I bet Eoraptor will enjoy this one.

This is the "Hooded Pitohui", the world's most poisonous bird. Yep, that's right, poisonous. Just handling these little guys can make your hands go numb. And eating them? You'd be dead in no time flat. There's a lot of interesting creatures out there. I've always loved nature.

I think this converstaion needs some speed.
Serious speed! Cool

A while back we had a "Most Beautiful Plane" thread and the SR-71 Blackbird was mentioned.  There is nothing else on earth like it.

Good ol' SR71, constructed a very few miles from where I sit right now. I once saw one in flight, very cool, sort of loafed along westerly, turned north, and stood on the gas. Wow, did he get small in a hurry.

I love this kind of 3d-pics and I have no problems to see them. But when I should introduse my 11 year old son in this secret pictures he didn´t get it my way... Your way was the key for him to master this fabulus pictures.

btw
Now I also download a app for my iphone with more of those, and even 3d-pictures that moving. Smiley
Thanx for this tip!!
