I hope you enjoy this one. There’s lots to look at. There’s cows, palm trees and cell phone photos, including one of The Beast, which is the image-splitter with a five-inch stereo base that I used to shoot the live-action 3D video.
Also uploaded to Facebook. Viewable in 2D, 3D and 360° virtual reality.

I apologize if I accidentally took a picture of a hot chick in a thong bikini in this presentation, but since they are *everywhere* this summer, that’s difficult to avoid. Although breaking my cubic illusion rules can cause terrible headaches or result in boring, flat images, breaking the rules at the U.S Open Of Surfing in Huntington Beach, California can be much more serious, not only in the water, but on the beach and on the trails. You bicycle riders might be as surprised as I was was to find out that you don’t have the right-of-way on the trails. As far as my cubic illusion rules are concerned, after a few months of nail-biting and head-scratching, I finally cracked the 360 degree 3D depth nut and drove the nails into its coffin, and the magical amount of net deviation can be observed in these four shots: 1/4 of the normal amount of 3.3% (1/30), which is precisely .825%. This four-shot slideshow plays for three minutes, so you have plenty of time to rotate it and look around. There is no audio in this one.
As I explain in this video, I’ve decided to wait one more day before getting out on my bicycle, and I’m trying to figure out things to do while I’m out on my adventures.
I might actually start using my Nintendo 3DS if I take it out with me.
