Hello, I am currently trying to make google cardboard do augmented reality. However, I will have to make the image displayed on the screen like the following:

Is it possible to use the OpenCV functions to duplicate two images like the image above? Sorry, if my questions isn't clear (tell me if it is unclear, I will edit my question).

Thanks in advance.

I am quite unsure if there is any computer vision functionality you are asking for in your question?

@StevenPuttemans So basically I am trying to duplicate an image which is placed side by side (like the image in the link provided in the question).

Mat img2 = img1.clone(); is duplicating the exact image. However, for a cardboard, its not an exact duplicate but two images that have a correspondence based on the baseline, so that our eyes creates 3D from that ... your idea is broken i guess

@StevenPuttemans Oh... That's sad.... Thanks for your reply though!

But I am quite convinced there should be other software out there that is able to do what you need? Like a stereo camera setup to mimic the glasses?

@StevenPuttemans I'm actually thinking about using OpenGL with OpenCV as someone did in this video:
