The Lenticular Box (the low-tech proof of the inverse relationship between invisibility and holodeck technology) Part 3.

This simply shows what a low-tech holodeck might look like from inside. You've seen a room fully painted as a wrap-around mural of some scene like a beach? My Lenticular Box adds more viewing angles to create more realistic viewing perspectives. each image fades into the other

The Lenticular Box (the low-tech proof of the inverse relationship between invisibility and holodeck technology) Part 3.

This simply shows what a low-tech holodeck might look like from inside. You've seen a room fully painted as a wrap-around mural of some scene like a beach? My Lenticular Box adds more viewing angles to create more realistic viewing perspectives. each image fades into the other as you turn around and is more convincing a wrap-around mural than the typical room mural. About my Lenticular Box: The first and only fully complete box it took the whole of November 2008 to complete. It was tedious as hell! I took the pics of the downtown riverfront and blew them up to 11x14 and cut off the extra three inches on the longest side to have square measured 11x11 inch images, 30 of them (also expensive as hell!) Then I had to really buckle down and make measurements and it had to be exact inorder to splice them together, and I had to remember where each image went and stuff. There are three axis of spliced-view panoramas around a Lenticular Box. I had to remember where every picture had to go.I had to hold tiny squares of picture in place until the glue dried. I woke up every morning and only took a break around lunch and stayed like that until 8 at night. Holding for the glue to dry was the most time-comsuming. The box is 1ft cubed with each panel having 289 half-inch cubicle cells in it and there are six panels in all.
