[Music]>>Trisha: Hey everyone! Welcome back to Sourcefed!
I’m Trisha Hershberger>>Steve: and I’m Steve Zaragoza
>>Trisha: Ya know what’s cool, Steve? Like really really cool steve?
>>Steve: 3D! Especially when it’s native 3D – not that bullshit 3D in post stuff.
>>Trisha: What if I told you the Mona Lisa by DaVinci was the first ever native 3D image.
>>Steve: Fuck you!>>Trisha: I know. Mind blowing. Researchers
found that the Mona Lisa in the Louvre and the copy of the Mona Lisa in the Prado Museum
in Madrid seem to be painted from a slightly different perspective, thus the first stereoscopic
image ever!>>Steve: Aw man – Stereoscopic stuff is
so cool. Stereoscopic images are images that are really two images that are just a little
off, mimicking the distance between our eyes, to create the illusion of depth – the illusion
of 3D.>>Trisha: Both Mona Lisa paintings were created
in Da Vinci’s studio in the early 1500s, meaning the first 3D image was made in the
1500s by Leonardo da Vinci. That guy was so freakin smart! I mean, if you watch DaVinci’s
Demons, as I do, you’d know that was a man of many talents.
>>Steve: I have not even heard of that show!>>Trisha: It’s ridiculous but fun. Back
to Mona Lisa! When looking at the Mona Lisa as a stereoscopic image (mind still blown)
researchers are finding that the mountains behind the subtly smiling vixen may have been
a flat backdrop and that da Vinci and a student may have painted her from a slightly different
angle to create the 3D effect. See this sweet lego figure recreation.
>>Steve: I love it how they have to be different distances, too, to get that exact 64-69 millimeters
apart – exactly the same distance as the average distance between men’s eyes! Coincidence,
I think not.>>Trish: and this is over 300 years before
Charles Wheatstone invented the stereoscope. Now before we get carried away, there are
other experts who doubt that the two paintings were even made at the same time let alone
intentionally made to be stereoscopic.>>Steve: Yeah but Da Vinci did write a lot
about eye anatomy and light reflection.>>Both: Hmm….
>>Trish: So what’s the coolest thing you’ve ever seen in 3D? [Music]
