3 maps in one combining new yorks subways, streets, and neighbourhoods/landmarks.
"Images are interlaced by alternating horizontal strips from each. The resulting compound image is calibrated to a specially designed polymer lens substrate. Lenses contain between 60 to 200 micro-lenses per inch, depending on the desired outcome. This is mounted to a backing, finished and packaged.
"The underlying Dynamap® technology essentially fools the human eye. By rotating the map, the angle of viewing is changed and one of the resulting three layers can be viewed."
is this really new? when i was 5 years old i had a ruler that you could tilt that would show different scenes? images/icon_smile_tongue.gif
