DIY no-budget stereo goggles

Have you ever asked yourself how to view all these stereoscopic 3D photographs, films and artwork out there without expensive equipment?
Or are you a stereoscopy enthusiast, but your friends cannot view cross-eyed?
Made from a CD cover and filled with water, these glasses are a costless, easy to build solution. The viewing experience is very pleasant and the glasses can be used for a wide range of media sizes.

I built the goggles following a very comprehensible tutorial on vrtifacts.com. The construction is very simple and doesn't require much more than a CD cover and all-purpose glue.

Driven by a sinking weight, the sculpture runs for several minutes with its continuously fruitless attempts. Watch a video of the sculpture below.

Recent days, the video of my most elaborate project became fairly viral: the Pendulum Marble Clock.

In the course of that, I received a lot of requests for plans. So I decided to successively make available plans and construction manuals for the projects that you can watch on my Youtube channel . This blog is the place where you will find them soon.
