Pseudo 3D 

    As some of you know, I'm quite a big fan of 3D imaging.  I subscribe to an email list of 3Ders, most of whom photograph in 3D and do really geeky techy things with their computers.  Through this list, I received a link to an interesting site where a programmer offers a conversion tool as freeware.  This application turns 2D pictures into a sort of 3D cardboard cut-out world. Then, it lets you create a short movie where the imaginary camera moves about within the picture.
    Sound confusing? 
Check out his examples.  The "Sample Outputs" should run in whatever media player you have.  It kinda eerie and kinda cool all at the same time.
    I wonder when someone will download the software and convert some of the more interesting pictures like:
The Scream (Edvard Munch) or persistence of Memory (Salvador Dali).
    Also, I finally remembered to add the website for the
National Stereoscopic Association to my Linkzard List.
There is no daily or weekly observance of special note, today.
July is Cell Phone Courtesy Month!
