The Famous Frankfurter Experiment
The Famous Frankfurter Experiment demonstrates exactly how the eyes are used during parallel-viewing (Magic Eye 3D viewing). If this experiment is successful, you'll see a miniature frankfurter floating in the air as pictured above. Wow.
- You need to look into the distance for this, so turn away from the computer monitor.
- Pick a specific object in the distance. Aim your eyes at that target.
- While looking at that distant target, bring your index fingers, tips touching, up in front of your eyes and into your line of sight.
- While still aiming your eyes at the distant target, calmly notice that a mini-frank has appeared between the tips of your fingers. Do not allow the awesome beauty of the mini-frank to distract you and cause you to aim your eyes directly at it. Continue to aim your eyes into the distance at your target.
- Pull the tips of your fingers apart slightly and observe the frankfurter floating in the air.
- Wiggle your fingers and watch the mini-frank dance.
Remember how your eyes feel while performing this depth-defying frankfurter feat and you can apply the same skills to 3D viewing.
