Here's something neat you can do if you have a DVD player and no time management skills. In the Seinfeld
episode "The Gymnast"

Magic Eye picture
single image random dot stereogram, and say that they see a spaceship.
Let's find out if there is one...
The picture is slightly obscured both times it's shown, and is always at an angle to the camera. So I ran a reverse perspective transformation on the picture frame for each screenshot, and averaged the results. Add in some sharpening (unsharp mask) to help with it not being lined up, and... it actually works!
