while exploring an internet hole the other day i began reading about chromadepth glasses. It got me thinking about being able to get "pop out 3d" effect in pico8 and voxatron without needing to do any kind of Anaglyph effect by only using the colors at the proper "depths" as described below
"The ChromaDepth glasses create striking 3D images from normal 2D images by pulling forward the color red to the foreground and sorting the remaining colors according to their position in the rainbow. ROY G BIV! (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet). The ChromaDepth process encourages fantastic 3D illusions without compromising the quality of the image when viewed without the glasses."
i can personally vouch that these work even with glasses because a few smoke shops ive been to sell them with giant fabric wall scrolls
Chromadepth Glasses if anyone is interested
i think crayola used these around 8 years ago
Thanks @VgBlade for opening my eyes to the (previously unknown) world of Chromadepth. Had no idea this was a thing. Last I knew was the old red/green 3D glasses.
I too would be very interested to know how well the PICO-8 palette fairs in this spectrum. Either way, I may also put a pair of glasses on my Xmas list, just in case! ;)
