the 3d glasses experiment

they were giving away free 3d glasses with one of the freebie london papers last night. for once they were actually quite comfortable so i decided to wear them my entire journey. it made reading the paper more fun and had the added advantage of discouraging anyone from sitting next to me.
i took this photo to show the power of 3d glasses in a packed commuter train.
lesson learnt 1 – always look like a slightly unhinged nutter if you want some space.
lesson learnt 2 – after wearing 3d glasses for half an hour, your eyes compensate so when you take them off your eyes still see different colours for a while. i tested this by looking at green grass with one eye then the other. probably making me look as mad as when i was wearing the glasses.
experiment over. next.
