For entertainment and trainings
Recommendations for interventions using a portaloscope:
- a person’s individual trip in the passenger seat dressed in portaloscope;
- any competitions that require orientation in space at the speed;
-the passing of simple rope mazes;
- dressing a man or a mannequin at time;
- drawing simple objects at time;
- dressing up sneakers race;
- picking up subjects suspended from the ceiling race;
- riding a chair with wheels on a route suggested by a person in a portaloscope (the
assistant is blindfolded)
-a ride in a bus in a familiar city in an attempt to guess where the bus with the
viewers dressed in portaloscopes is at the moment (the mirror city tour turned to
At interactive scientific exhibitions
Pseudoscopic perception of space through the portaloscope (reinforced because of
the unusual rotation of the field of view around the optical axis) unlike the normal
perception of space introduces a rather strong component of pseudo transparency,
which reverses the perception of the background and the middle of the object.
This influences on interpretation of movements, shadows, ambiguous objects,
various glares and reflections.
Using the portaloscope in combination with geometric wire spatial figures as the
tetrahedron and others, you can instantly watch amazing phenomena of spatial
If we turn to nature, the trees and the background will fight in your field of vision
for the right to be in the foreground. And if the breeze suddenly blows and the
branches of the tree begin to sway you'll be able to watch amazing dynamic effect
of reverse perspective.
People who have not experienced anything like this, experiencing all these
illusions of perception again will overestimate what is possible in this world.
At art exhibitions
A portaloscope can be used to view showpieces in any art or science, where they
have three dimensions. You can add accent on lighting or movement, receiving the
duality of perception and, thereby, enhancing the drama. This will provide the
viewer with a quite new experience from the perception of the space of the
For example, it can be very effective in modern sculpture, which focuses on
perception of space, such as "Quantum man" by Anthony Gormle.
The pseudoscopic effect of the perception through the portalscope performs well
when the artworks focus on light and shadow in space.
Also, because of the unusual rotation of the field of view around its axis, fairly
impressive illusions of portal are observed when you see water surfaces or surfaces
with other liquid.
For educational and training purposes
(in- depth lessons in biology, physiology, psychology, etc.)
The constructions of all our devices including a portaloscope, are made light and
portable, that is extremely handy for field tutorials for pupils and students.
With the help of a portaloscope it is well to understand the most important features
of human stereovision associated with disparity of eye retinas.
.It is important to show that binocular neurons have a high adaptability and can
adapt to calculate the depth of space with negative disparity on the retinas.
When reversion rotated 90 degrees relative to the optical axis of the field of view
students get the opportunity to observe quite vivid motor skills conflict with a field
of view. It is important to explain to students the adaptability of the human body
from the standpoint of physiological stress limits, etc.
If you pull out one of the optical elements from the groove and the second one
leave in its place it is possible to observe the phenomenon of the struggle of the
visual fields of both eyes.
- The experiments on adaptation of reversion to the horizontal field of view and the
change in the sign of disparity as well as the gravitational conflict.
- Training of spatial abilities
- Preliminary adaptation of the vestibular system before long sea voyages and
travels by other modes of transport for prevention of motion sickness (sea
sickness) (A patent on a method of spatial abilities training)
- The flexibility training of pilots and astronauts’ vestibular system
- Psychological experiments on the updating of the child's perception in adults
- Investigation of the effect of pseudoscopic vision on fusional reflex.
For clarity of mathematical models of regular polyhedrons.
Changes in the perception of mathematical models that is perceived through the
portaloscope like a Necker cube only in 3 dimensions. With the help of the
portaloscope it becomes possible to see mathematical transformations
recognizable with difficulty associated with the modeling of regular polyhedrons..
Shadows and reflections are swapped, and it can all be seen in a long time, which
is convenient for study and without excessive strain on the eyes. In addition, in
certain installations you gain control over images of the studied objects which
could add an additional variable in the studied functions. For example, if when
monitoring spatial figure, both eyes are open, then through the portaloscope you
will see the simplex shape in reverse perspective that is, turned inside out. Closing
one eye causes the normal or flat vision of the figure depending on the remaining
terms of stereovision. That is, you get the opportunity to change the perceived
image without the need for complex manipulation of the object.
The creation of new ideas in contemporary art and architecture
Manipulation of visual images is one of the main features of pseudoscopic vision.
Take, for example famous works by Patrick Hughes with reperspective. Using the
portaloscope you get the chance to take control over the images of reality in your
head. Normal vision for the students of contemporary art schools and architectural
universities is very important but there a hindrance may occur when a student is
trying to express their subjective view of the nature of the events or phenomena. In
this sense, the portaloscope opens up possibilities for completely exclusive
depending on the additional attitudes ways to express the subjective attitude of the
