Here’s a little post-Christmas teaser for a feature that may eventually make it into the picklet builder; stereoscopic 3D picklets!

You need red/cyan glasses to see the effect, which is messed up a bit by video compression artifacts, but it’s surprisingly effective in the browser.

Trust me.

The source image is a greyscale PNG. The colour channel transforms are done using a couple of html5 canvas elements and the canvas.getContext('2d').globalCompositeOperation = 'darker' blend mode.

I was also playing with the red and cyan RGB values, but it works best (unsurprisingly) with maxed out #f00 and #0ff.
