This is part of an Creative Commons open hardware project.
It's called openKMQ / openOverUnder and uses a cheap prism viewer (available since 1983) that allows for full color stereoscopic viewing of printed matters as well as LCDs.

The iPad is the first tablet class device that seemlessly works in portrait mode and is therefor a perfect match for the over/under viewing method.

The catch with the viewer is that one has to keep it at a precise distance to have a 3-D experience. This sweet spot distance is proportional to how far the pictures of right and left views are apart. The bigger the image pair, the bigger the optimum viewing distance.

A minimum size would be a postcard, so sorry this won't work with an iPhone, but you can alter the proportions so it fits any remote controlable Digital Picture Frame.

For the iPad, using the full screen (half/half), the optimum distance is 440 mm.

Step 1: Get the Viewer and the HDF Plate

In the USA you can get the KMQ prism viewer here .
For sources in other countries look here.

Get High Density Fibre HDF measuring 600 x 425 x 3 mm (or 3.2mm)
The pics show one that is painted black on one side.

Find a laser cutting service or a wood CNC shop that can process the EPS / SVG files.
Now you can use this stand to watch 3-D videos on vimeo.<br>over/under videos and instructions to make them can be found under<br>http://vimeo.com/groups/openkmq3d<br>We also have a project tweet @openKMQ3D and a facebook group &quot;openKMQ3D&quot;
The website biohemmet.se recently annouced built-in support to convert 3D bluray to view with this method.
