In the current hype for 3-D effects and movies it is easily forgotten that the basic principles for these have already been laid down 180 years ago by the English scientist Charles Wheatstone.
We see the world in three dimensions because our eyes perceive objects from two different angles. To prove this theory Wheatstone invented, apart from the well-known stereoscope, also the much rarer pseudoscope. This device swaps the two images perceived by the eyes and therefore reverses our depth perception: close objects appear far away, remote objects look close. You have to see it to believe it!
