Re: Article: 'FLW Houses Don't Have to Cost a Fortune'

Interesting that they start with a picture of the Neils house. At 2.79m it could be considered a fortune, at least for a 2600 sq ft house. On the other hand, it sits on a million-dollar lot next to multi-million dollar homes.

Location, location, location! :lol:

S
All vision is ultimately in the brain, but yes.

I would think that the 3-D viewers for VR should work perfectly with the parallel images, wheras the Cross Viewing doesn't need glasses.

S Cross viewing you simply cross your eyes until a third image forms in the middle, then 'relax' your eyes a little and the 3-D image should ...

Yes, I'd enjoy seeing more. I was able to get the effect with an iPhone (held vertically or horizontally but not, so far, with a laptop.

Has anyone here seen it? Is it worth 2 hours? It is the first Wes Anderson Feature, a "quirky caper...
