“Piku-Piku” is a smooth version of wiggle stereoscopy. There’s a website: Start3D.com that takes your left and right images (just move the camera a few centimeters in between each shot) and makes a smooth blend between them. Easy!

2) Wiggle stereoscopy:

In the piku-piku you can see where the two images have been interpolated - the missing pixels take on the color of those around them. Sometimes there is glitching, which could be a bug. Here’s a SIGGRAPH 2010 paper on more extreme view interpolation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyiaAYrFrLM
