Super nerd Doctor Popular recently did a wiggle stereoscopy experiment using two Flip video cameras and $10 in nuts and bolts, filming himself doing yo-yo tricks at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Wiggle stereoscopy is when images from two slightly offset points of view are quickly alternated, resulting in a 3D effect that does not require special glasses to view. A few months ago we shared the world’s first music video that utilized the technique.
Here’s a photograph showing the rig that was used to film this. The footage was combined afterward using Final Cut Pro’s Blink filter.
Be warned — some of you might find watching this kind of thing pretty nauseating.
