I can. Very magic eye indeed.

I can't get the large version to cross though (get about half way), the smaller ones are sweet.

I do it by looking (focussing) through the screen, but neither version seems reversed? Unless its just too small to pick up.

Cool work

I could see it in the cross-eyed version but I couldn't get my eyes to diverge enough for your parallel version. On my monitor the images are 80mm apart which is larger than my interpupillary distance and I certainly can't turn my eyeballs outwards. Can some people, can I?!

Interesting that to me it didn't look like "real" 3D, the people in the foreground appeared as a 2D layer in front of the background. Still pretty cool.

Yep - the crossed one was fine - The parallel one defintely has some sort of depth - but in a screwed up sort of way.

The LG 3D Max is has an inter-axial distance of about 25mm. So yes.....depth fades rapidly beyond about 5 metres. 

My Fuji Real 3D W3 has an inter-axial distance of 75mm - same as human eyes - so depth is perceived at distances very similar to what our eyes would see. 

But the Fuji is crap for close-ups....because the lenses on a camera can't converge on a close object the way our eyes can. I use the LG 3D Max mainly for things that are close (0.4m to 4m).....and then the depth works quite well.
