The Famous Frankfurter ExperimentThe Famous Frankfurter Experiment demonstrates exactly how the eyes are used during parallel-viewing (Magic Eye 3D viewing). If this experiment is successful, you'll see a miniature frankfurter floating in the air as pictured above. Wow.
Remember how your eyes feel while performing this depth-defying frankfurter feat and you can apply the same skills to 3D viewing.
More Tips on Parallel-Viewing: Looking Through A Solid ObjectTo do parallel-viewing, you must aim your eyes through the image and into the distance. The problem is there's a solid object in the way -- a computer monitor or a book or something! How do you look through a solid object?! Well, generally, we look directly at what we want to see and leave the X-ray vision to Superman. In this case, we've got to develop our own superpowers.
Suggestion: imagine you are looking through a window. See illustration below.
