A new technique for the presentation of cyclopean stereograms is described, in which complete information for the two eyes is contained in a single, printed image. Such "autostereograms" may be generated to contain an unlimited range of 3-D depth forms within certain constraints. The depth image also occurs at multiple depth planes in front of and behind the physical plane, and may be designed to progress recursively through these multiple planes. Specific autostereograms may be generated so as to be used to continuously tile an indefinitely large surface. Further types can be devised to produce different depth images in the two orthogonal viewing orientations. Finally, the autostereogram principle is used to explore cyclopean perception based on the percept ofbinocular luster, which has surprising properties.
