Yeah, I had noticed that.

So, it isn't possible to create an image that only one eye will see, rather it seems that there is a (narrow?) "column" in the display that is only visible by one at at a time. (ie, column on the far left is only seen by left eye, column on far right only seen by right eye)

Yeah, it looks like the article got it totally wrong....


By the way, (sorry if it's a stupid question), I assume the VB can have two separate images (one for each eye), right? Is there any demo out there where if you close one eye you see "A", and "B" if you close the other eye?

Hi, thanks for the guide! I've just used it to get my first "hello world" running. w00t!

A small suggestion, you could provide a sample image for people to use. It took me a good 20 minutes to find a jpg I liked and then I had to resize it and so on. Also, some information on the maximum dimensions and so on would be great.

Thanks!

I don't think so, but it's hard to tell without getting responses on the forum. Still, it was kind of fun to get an email in German that wasn't spam!

Just a minor comment/question.... I thought the VB used oscillating mirrors. In other words, the mirrors don't spin completely around an axis, rather they go back and forth. Well, at least that's what it seemed like when I opened mine up!

Anyways, looking forward to the magazine scan! (and then we should send in letters to complain about the mistakes)

You can always download the images independently and then put them together into a pdf...
