That CANNOT be medically good for one's eyes or for the nerves as well. Yikes, I have a headache just watching the video.

It's just a joke, right?

TOO funny!

Here is another way to do it without glasses. (Hint, this is an animated GIF, it may not show up the same on all computers.)

Sometimes the comments are better than the article:

"If you attach the device to your nuts you can see god in 3D."

3D glasses are so 2009.

Parallax barrier is the current method of choice. It works best for small displays and uses more power than standard displays, but it eliminates those stupid glasses.

There have always been multiple methods of seeing 3D. The parallax method was used in the Soviet Union in a small theatre at one point. It didn't work very well. Juggler is right, it works fairly well on small displays, in a manner similar to (but not exactly like) those lenticular 3D postcards.

I guess I'm not surprised some people took the flickering lashes seriously. People believe some pretty strange stuff. Can you imagine Marilyn Monroe with flickering eyelashes like that? She'd probably have taken off. "Happy Birthday, Mr. President..."
