The Short Version

I have a pair of cameras mounted side-by-side and connected so they can be triggered simultaneously. This results in two nearly identical photos, taken from a few inches apart. I merge the two photos using a special color formula, so that when viewed through the glasses, the left eye can only see the photo from the left camera while the right eye can only see the photo from the right camera. This provides your eyes with the illusion of actually “being there”. Your brain does the rest!
