From the Author
My background is in Visual Basic programming, and teaching others how to program, so I'm always on the lookout for cool algorithms and fun things to code. Recently, while working on my Kindle book, "VB Strings", the topic of autostereograms came up and the curious question was whether they would work okay on a black and white Kindle display instead of just on printed paper. The challenge was on!
After a few days of research, and a breakthrough that allowed me to crunch the core algorithm down to just a few lines of code, my first Kindle stereograms were ready to be tested. They worked very well! The quickest way to share the fun was to go ahead and publish a book of stereogram images for the Kindle, and here it is.
About the Author
John Clark Craig
is a prolific author with dozens of books published over the years mainly on the topics of Visual Basic Programming, published by both Microsoft Press and O'Reilly Media. John has recently moved to the self publishing platform, not just because of its recent availability to all who love to write for the Kindle platform, but because he can now publish more versatile titles.
These auto-stereograms were created using his Visual Basic knowledge. They not only make your Kindle into a 3-D display, which is fun to show and share with others, but they also have the side benefit, according to the medical industry, of actually being good for your eyes!
