  • All About 3D

If you’ve already checked out our YouTube channel, you may have noticed that we have prepared quite a lot of cool videos for you to watch: action sports, fun tricks, pets, travel. But what if you don’t have a VR headset yet?

Well, there is a trick you can do to watch 3D videos without any fancy gear. All you need is an open mind and a bit of patience.

Dubbed “The Cross-Eyed Trick”, this simple technique will not require any equipment and will let you see Vitrima videos in 3D.

Let’s give it a try — first with a simple 3D image.


Here’s How To Watch 3D Without A VR Headset






  1. Look straight at the picture. Make sure your head isn’t tilted.
  2. Cross your eyes and look “through” the picture until a 3rd dot pops up between the other two.
  3. Keep focusing on the middle dot until you see it in 3D.


The third dot is the left and right one merged together to create the 3D effect. Now, let’ try some real pictures! Follow the same steps and try to see them in 3D.


  •     Look at the picture.
  •     Make sure the image is in the centre of your vision.
  •     Now, cross your eyes. Look “through” the picture until a 3rd image pops up on the screen in between the two existing ones.
  •     This center image is the left and right one merged together to create the 3D effect.
  •     Keep focusing on the middle image until you see it in 3D.

Helpful hints:

  • Be patient. Mastering this method might take a while. But once you get it, you will be able to focus and see 3D in a matter of seconds.
  • Smaller images are easier to see and won’t strain your eyes as much. Start with simple pictures and move on to more complex ones. Take breaks.
  • Make sure you are in a place with good lighting, yet there is no glare on your screen
  • This method is suitable for most people. However, if you have impaired vision, the 3D effect may not be as prominent.
