This is completely off-topic, and have no idea if anyone can figure this out. In real life, I have -zero- depth perception. Life for me is two dimensional, as if it's on a flat screen. Yet when I put on a VR headset, I can see everything in perfect 3D.
I noticed this the first time I went to see a 3D movie a few years back. The way everything popped off the screen blew my mind, much the same way playing Fallout VR and Asgard's Wrath are doing now.
I'm not really sure why this is the case. I know my eyes are badly imbalanced, with 20/40 sight in one eye and 20/100 in the other. My brain just seems to discard the input from my right eye so I don't normally see things in 3D. But somehow VR and 3D movies are able to 'trick' my brain into processing stereoscopic images properly.
Anyone have any clue why this might be?
