Presenting two offset images separately to the left and right eye of the viewer, these two-dimensional images are then combined in the brain to give the perception of 3D depth. In most cases, a special viewing device (stereoscope) is used to correctly view the images in order to perceive the intended effect. However, by using “Wiggle Stereoscopy” and simply alternating between the left and right images of a stereogram, one is able to achieve a similar “you are there” effect. Between the 1840s and the 1920s, stereographs served as an important method of entertainment, education, and virtual travel to exotic places of the world.
