The end of 3D glasses? Researchers create a multidimensional image using nothing but a simple camera and basic software

  • 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.
