In Brief
  • Stereoscopic vision allows humans to judge distance, which develops their ability to have true depth perception.
  • But what are the other advantages of stereoscopic vision? And how did it evolve?

Humans and other mammals have two eyes so that they can perceive three visual dimensions. But there is so much more to the story of 3D, and stereoscopic tech, than having two eyes.
