Magic Eye Trick
  • Description

    Something I noticed today while doing the background for another strip. For some reason, when you look at it just right, this background pops into 3D, just like the old magic eye pictures. There's no hidden image, mind you, but the effect itself is interesting. It seems like each "pillar" is at one of three different depths. I might have to play around with this some more.

    Anyway, let me know if you see it too.



    Focus Carefully, Like looking at the old Magic Eye Stuff. Does the background go 3D for you?

    I guess it don't work if you're wearing glasses...

    Actually the guy who came up with those "Magic Eye" pictures first noticed the effect while looking at a piano keyboard. Anything with similar-looking elements that your left and right eyes can focus on separately can produce the same effect.

    For more than you ever wanted to know about them:
