Pseudoscope
A pseudoscope is a binocular optical instrument that reverses depth perception. It is used to study human stereoscopic perception. Objects viewed through it appear inside out, for example: a box on a floor would appear as a box shaped hole in the floor.
It typically uses sets of optical prisms, or periscopically arranged mirrors to swap the view of the left eye with that of the right eye.

Monokai » Blog Archive » Pseudoscope
Today I’ve finished my Pseudoscope, following a tutorial found online. From wikipedia: “Whereas stereoscopic depth perception is the result of fusing the different images received by the two eyes, pseudoscopic perception is the result of switching the inputs to the eyes before they are fused, so that the right eye receives information normally received by the left eye, and the left eye receives information normally received by the right eye” For some years now, the Pseudoscope intrigued me.

cerebral vortex: The Pseudoscope
Depth perception is really neat. We have it because we have eyes that point forward, and because of the distance between them (called the interpupillary distance).

Make a Pseudoscope
A Pseudoscope is an optical instrument made with two prisms. As seen in the drawing, the mirrors reverse the image in each eye causing some items viewed through it to look quite unusual: convex objects become concave, things pointing towards you may look like they are pointing away and vice versa.

Alex Willisson's blog: Pseudoscope!
I'm designing a Pseudoscope! In short, a Pseudoscope switches the images going into your eyes (what would go into your left eye goes into your right, and vice versa). My dad was playing with a paper kit for one around christmas, and it didn't work very well.
