There are two ways of experiencing the third dimension from a stereo pair of images: retro and supertech futuristic.
An example of supertech futuristic method is a 3d television. The rumours say the super tech futuristic scientists have managed to make a 3d television for which no glasses are needed! How awesome is that? If super tech futuristic is your way, kulacode will export your stereo images to a format the 3d TVs understand. Kúla Inventions is not making 3d TVs yet, meanwhile we provide retro solutions for viewing stereo images.
Before looking into more 3d viewing methods it is good to know how super simple 3d works. The only thing these 3d techniques strive to do is to view one image to the left eye and another image to the right eye. The brain does all the image processing, deceiving the eye of the beholder and giving you the desired deeper experience. Good luck and enjoy.
Kúla's stereo viewer
Is one of a kind. It is optimised for viewing 3d content full screen in a comfortable distance (60cm-1m). What makes this product so kúl are the countless possibilities. It is possible to:
- watch stereo video in full colour
- see the 3d content directly from a camera screen
- and directly from your computer screen
- feel good and comfortable while doing that
- look good
Looks familiar? Those are used for anaglyph images where the colours of one perspective are filtered such that the image can pass through only one of the two coloured glasses. In that way the left-eye perspective can reach the left eye and vice versa. The result is a colour reduced 3d image. Easy, accessible and fun!
Even the super duper tech futurists themselves, NASA, have protected their inner retro anaglyph self and we can absolutely recommend their 3d images, like this one of the sun.
Stereo-card provides a full colour 3d experience on a stereo image pair printed on a strip. Look into kúla´s Stereo-card and what you will see are three pretty photogenic Icelandic horses that seem to be just in front of you. A good way to escape the office on a dull day. Not need to say, but that image was taken by kúla deeper and precessed with kúlacode wich can also help you out in preparing deeper photos for the stereo-card strips.
The cross-eyed method is very similar to the stereo-card/viewer method. Unlike the stereoscopic images, the left image is on the right side and vice versa. Here, there are no lenses to help you out so you have to cross your eyes, watch the right image with your left eye and the left image with the right one and a 3d image will appear as a third image in between. To practice, we've made these instructions on how to see 3d cross-eyed for you my dear. Look at the kula 3d image gallery for trying out the different methods
