Animated, Stereographic "Chorus Girls" Puppet Kite

 Jeeze, now my mind is going a hundred miles an hour :-) Aside from thinking
about how I could take (2D) photos of stereoscopic cross-viewed kites and
convert those photos to red-blue anaglyphs... (huh?) ... I was just thinking
about this:
 Years before my interest in 3D photography, I thought about making an
animated, dancing "Chorus Girls" type Puppet Kite. I have made numerous
kites that have internally moving parts (hence, "Puppet Kites") but have
always thought the line-up of identical objects with identically-moving
parts (i.e., legs in this example) would be a very fun thing to do. IOW,
instead of just two or three moving parts, there would be a row or a series
of identical (or very similar), moving parts...
 Now... do you see a stereographic idea happening, here??? Instead of the
left/right images of stereography, you have a series of images with
progressive left to right perspectives, like those taken with a lenticular
camera (or one camera taking cha-cha's for a number of parallel shots) and
with a viewing process very similar to the Magic Eye stereograms... but
cross-viewed for large images on a kite. (You can cross your eyes a bit to
view the kite, but spreading them is another story ;-)

 Anyway... talk about me getting the cart before the horse... but I couldn't
resist... just imagine animated, Magic Eye-type "Puppet Kites"... *shewt,
that's Hollywood material, there ;-) Of course the wind always stinks when
you need it most, though... "Take 1, Take 2, Take 3 ... ///... Take 3,497,
Take 3,498" ;-)

 I better get the stereographic kite basics down, first :-)
