‘Captain Marvel’ Optical Illusion Posters Let You See 3D Images From 2D Patterns
By Yoon Sann Wong, 01 Mar 2019
Marvel Studios continues its throwback to the 90s for Captain Marvel with this new five-part Magic Eye-themed poster series, which pays homage to the stereograms craze from that era.
Magic Eye is a book series published in the 90s by N.E. Thing Enterprises. It featured stereograms—each essentially being a picture within a picture—that hides an object. This appears in 3D when viewed in a certain way by the reader.
On Twitter, Marvel Studios posted the five graphics with the vague caption, “Who remembers these?” leaving many Twitter users at a loss over what they were seeing.
The 3D viewing instructions to unlock the images hiding within each stereogram is available on the official Magic Eye website. Magic Eye Inc. highlights that the 3D images are often easier to perceive on paper rather than through a computer screen.
Nevertheless, those who are keen to try their hand at unlocking the hidden graphics can follow the viewing guide here.
If you’re curious as to how the Magic Eye optical illusion works, Vox’s short video, included below, will enlighten you.
