Dick Ainsworth, DeFanti's collaborator since 1973, designed the device to simultaneously trigger the shutters of both cameras, like two mechanical human eyes. But to achieve a 360 x 180 degree panoramic effect, the CAVEcam has to take 72 pictures per "eye," with the robotic GigaPan Epic Pro automatically repositioning the camera each time, for a total of 144 images.

They overlap the screens a little (like a turtle shell) to minimize bezel obstructions and they say it doesnt seem to be objectionable in the stereo view.
