Parallax is a fascinating phenomenon that has real-world applications, including the amazing ability of humans to use their two eyes and parallax shift to judge depth of field. You can reach out and grab that doorknob because of science.
For this reason and more I absolutely love the latest creation to come out of the Grönefelds’ workshop, their aptly named Parallax Tourbillon.
Let’s get straight to the point: why parallax? Good questions deserve good answers. When viewing precision-measuring instruments such as micrometers or dial gauges, parallax error needs to be taken into account lest you make an inaccurate reading.
