The effect of “vivid 3D vision” can be experienced with just one eye, a study has suggested.
Researchers at St Andrews University said a method using a small circular hole could have wide implications for 3D technology.
The study, published in Psychological Science, also has implications for people who have just one eye or difficulties with double-eye vision.
