So this is the reason I've been wanting to make a new post for a couple of days
One of my favorite coffee shops / board game stores within walking distance of my place has had this hanging on the wall for a while and every time I saw it it gave me a really strong Pico 8 vibe, a few months back I met up with some family there and I guess they caught me staring at the poster because a few weeks ago it was given to me as a late birthday present which rocks because i was a bit bummed that i didnt grab it earlier or figure out who the artist was
i know its not actually an ad poster but its pretty close. i may have to buy a pico8 logo sticker to apply to the outside of the frame
edit: if the author is a user here speak up, if not il post the artists info next time im in the shop and can ask "who did it" so credit can be applied
Another edit: it just says video game if anyone was wondering
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
ive been lurking here since preordering a pocketchip, i came across the estimated shipping schedule this morning and promptly bought voxatron after seeing mine is not leaving china till around july 25th
if i overlooked another post with this info sorry for the repeat.
i look forward to being part of this community and apologize beforehand for being so clueless as this will be my first experience with any form of coding
