3D Chandelier mechanism

Cross-eyed version

Most people can view this type of 3D image without much trouble. You want your right eye to see the left image and vice versa. Hold your head level so your eyes are at the same height. Cross your eyes until the two images merge. Relax your eyes and let them focus. To help the images merge, close each eye in turn and block it from seeing the wrong image with your hands.


Straight-eyed version

I find this method far more difficult and eye-straining, but some people prefer it. You want your right eye to see the right image and vice versa. Hold your head level so your eyes are at the same height. Move away from your monitor several feet. Relax your eyes until the two images merge, or look at a point further away over the top of your monitor and then look down without letting your eyes move or focus. To help the images merge, hold your hand flat between your eyes and adjust it to block each eye from seeing the wrong image. Once the images merge and your eyes focus, you can slowly move back up to the monitor.


Interlaced version

You'll need LCD shutter-glasses such as the US$100 VR Surfer to view this image in 3D.
