I had wondered if you could "force" your brain to adjust by using two
cardboard tubes to restrict each eye to it's half of the picture. The
convergence would be way out, but the brain is apparently quite
capable of adapting - hence some of the experiments with people
wearing "upside-down" goggles long term.
You'd still get "matchstick" people though - like the days when
they'd shrink widescreen films into normal 4:3 so you could see all
the titles and credits.
You could always put a sheet of cardboard over half of the screen !
Visit http://www.magpiesnestpublishing.co.uk/ for books by acclaimed
author Gladys Hobson. Novels - poetry - short stories - ideal as
Christmas stocking fillers. Some available as e-books.
