Zeiss Mk IV Planetarium Projector Lounger
Here is a caption and the Lounger it describes from the Griffith Observatory (the subject of the previous post). Planetarium projectors are a wonderful example of ideas embodied in things and the Zeiss Mk IV is one of the finest. Its use, documented here, anticipates the active landscapes of flight simulators – in a delightfully home-spun way.

Eames House in Stereo
A panorama and four stereoscopic views of the Eames House, which is looking very crisp after some renovations.
The stereo views have quite wide separation, so may cause eye-strain if you are not used to viewing 3D pairs. As usual, go cross eyed so that the two images register over each other exactly. You will see three images – concentrate not he middle one. If you are having trouble registering the images make the picture size smaller. Once you have got the 3D image, try to relax and the depth should increase.
