- Technique takes two images from the same angle but at different depths
- The slight differences provide enough information for a computer to create a brand-new image as if the camera had been moved to one side
- By stitching these two images together into an animation, anyone can create the impression of a 3D image
- Experts believe it could also provide a cheaper method to create 3D films for the big screen

Researchers have developed a way to create a 3D image through a single lens, without moving the camera.
The technology could allow amateur photographers and microscopists to create the impression of a stereo image without using expensive hardware.
It could also provide a cheaper method to create 3D films for the big screen.
