erh... my point isn't how easy this is to do theoretically nor how much of a
hack the camera feature is, but that it is kinda cool if the image on the
screen (doesn't have to be from the camera, some proper content would be
more interesting) looks like if it has depth. that it has to be an image
from slightly different angle... well, of course. but making a lcd that
makes it look good (if it does, which was my original question) is another
matter (even if the theory is old as the two-eyes-animal itself).
switching the image (of some polygon model) back and forth for each frame
results in more flicker than depth. i tried a lot of silly things like that
as a kid too. incl. red-green-glasses.
