People say we're running out of energy. That's only true if we stick with these old 19th century technologies. We are awash in energy from sunlight.

Seeing in 3D is possible with one eye, St Andrews study suggests

RATE THIS! +62

Researchers at St Andrews University said a method using a small circular hole could have wide implications for 3D technology. The study, published in Psychological Science, also has implications for people who have just one eye or difficulties with double-eye vision.

 
The method was said to create 3D similar to effects used in film-making. Researchers said that current thinking was based on the need for two visual images - one from each eye - to be combined in the visual cortex, creating a sense of depth.
 
But Dr Dhanraj Vishwanath, a psychologist at the university, believes both eyes are not necessary for this "3D experience".
 
Dr Vishwanath said: "We have demonstrated experimentally, for the first time, that the same 'special way' in which depth is experienced in 3D movies can also be experienced by looking at a normal picture with one eye viewing through a small aperture (circular hole).
 
"While this effect has been known for a long time, it is usually dismissed.
 
"Now we have shown that it is in fact real, and the perceptual results are exactly like stereoscopic 3D, the kind seen in 3D movies.
 
"Based on this finding, we have provided a new hypothesis of what the actual cause of the 3D experience might be."
 
The university said the 1838 invention of the stereoscope - the technology behind 3D film-making - brought with it the assumption two eyes were necessary for 3D vision.

So these scientists are saying that can create 3D similar to effects used in film-making with having a person look through a hole with one eye. Amazing what the body's mind can do isn't it. Reply

So they are saying that both eyes are not necessary for this "3D experience". That's good to know so are they going to make the 3-D glasses with one lens then. Reply

In the front and along the sides, chrome wraps nearly everything, bringing plenty of sparkle without becoming gaudy. Chrome can be found on the headlights, grille, windows and the bottom of the doors. Somehow, the door handles escaped the chrome treatment, but I think it was for the best. It's a fine line. The roof is rounded, leaning back from the hood, creating a sense of movement, even when the GS is parked. Reply
