Don't do that, they'll STICK

Remember that thing you're mother told you? Don't cross your eyes, they'll get stuck that way! Well, in the age of the World Wide Web you can actually find instructions on how to do things you shouldn't do. And now, here I am to tell you what you can do with that new found skill.

Look at the above pair of photos for a moment. Now, cross your eyes so that your right eye is aimed at the left photo and the left eye at the right. As your eyes cross, you'll see a point where the two images line up and appear to have much more depth than either image on it's own.

  1. Oh that is totally COOL!! I crossed my eyes and saw 3 images and the one in the middle was in 3-D!!! Really nice! I StumbledUpon a webpage with a similar thing where they made animate gifs that alternate between two images like you have there. And with those you don't have to cross your eyes. But yours is better I think. Way cool!

  2. BTW, it also works with the images on the laptop...
