George Kokoris, a senior designer at Rare Ltd., sees double images when he looks at anything farther than 18 inches. This is because his eyes aren’t parallel and he’s “mostly” stereoblind, which is a term given to people who don’t have the ability to perceive stereoscopic depth. Amazingly, when he first played on a Nintendo 3DS, Kokoris says it was the first time he had ever seen a third dimension. To read more about Kokoris’ experience with a Nintendo 3DS, click here.
I had never known it was possible for reality to look this way—for things to look as solid as they feel.
Yet there I was, holding this little chunk of plastic and silicon in my hands, tears streaming down my face because I had never known it was possible for reality to look this way—for things to look as solid as they feel. I couldn’t look away. I got a 3DS of my own the next day, and later replaced it with an XL. I revisited Hyrule in Ocarina of Time 3D, stopping and staring at every piece of architecture. I still spend more time running aimlessly through Super Mario 3D Land’s gorgeous environments than I do trying to beat the game.
