Here’s a little 3D flickergraph from the OR today.

Praise is the patient going under anesthesia in the photo. He’s an extremely smiley 9 year old boy who’s come to us here at CURE Zambia all the way from Zimbabwe! He had surgery to treat his hydrocephalus and is recovering in the ward now. If you so like, you can follow his time with us here.

If you’re more interested in the flickergraph (or 3D photograph – I think I might be the only person that calls them flickergraphs). It is just an animated GIF made from two, slightly displaced photos to give the perception of depth. It’s similar to the way our eyes work. We see depth because our two eyes are slightly displaced, giving us two slightly different images. Our brain then combines these two images and can, rather accurately, perceive distances and depth.
