Shared with the public at the 2012 CES convention, these 3D Pictures by Casio captivated onlookers.

The pictures are mainly 2D but with 3D highlights which give an eye-popping take to the traditional 2D looks. At first glance, these pictures look almost perfectly normal until you realize the part that’s sticking out, then the images look almost hyper-realistic. The most amazing part about these 3D pictures is that they are not taken on a special camera, or use anything out of the norm; they are quite simply 2D pictures that pop out into 3D life. Casio, the designers responsible for these 3D pictures, has decided to keep their methodology under wraps.

It is no secret that these popping-prints are sure to attract some serious attention. The pictures demand attention, and easily bring any room to life. Casio has not yet detailed the release of this product, as it maintains a more secretive approach to CES 2012; however, these 3D pictures are sure to soon be popping up everywhere.
