3D Vision

(1) Capturing an image in 3D. Methods include taking multiple 2D images that are "stitched" together to create 3D, as well as using two cameras for a stereoscopic capture. See computer vision.

(2) (3D Vision) A stereoscopic 3D gaming system for Windows PCs from NVIDIA. 3D Vision requires an NVIDIA card and a monitor that accepts input at 120 frames per second. The kit includes driver software, infrared transmitter and liquid crystal (LC) shutter glasses to render games written to the Windows Direct3D API. Introduced in 2009, 3D Vision has been praised for its realism. See LC shutter glasses, true 120 Hz, active 3D and 3D visualization.

Read and her colleagues have since confirmed research from the 1980s showing that praying mantises really do have 3-D vision. In a 2016 paper, they used beeswax to stick tiny blue-and-green 3-D glasses on the faces of praying mantises and showed them 3-D movies of what appeared to be tasty-looking prey, finding that the insects lunged only at targets in the 3-D movies, not the regular 2-D ones.
3-D vision is a handy ability for praying mantises, which are skilled hunters of their fellow insects and are known to take down the occasional small bird.
Scientists already know how to confuse human 3-D vision - and so they set out to see if praying mantises would also fall, er, prey to those same tricks.
According to fellow researcher Jenny Read, this was a simpler method of 3-D vision, and could have implications for building lighter machines, such as drones.

It is now an accepted fact that stereoscopic images (3-D images) cause an "intense eye accommodation activity"7 such as headaches, nausea, blurred vision, diplopia, asthenopia and visually-induced motion sickness(VIMS), which is characterised by tiredness, headache and soreness of the eye,8,9 collectively known as the 3-D vision syndrome.8,9 The phenomenon of the 3-D vision syndrome has been strengthened by researches conducted in Rome, Italy.
