Having a non-distracting foreground layer is a basic 2D cinematography technique. Those elements are there just as a subtle reminder that you have depth perception. In 3D, they're not there to call...

I'm not renting a pdf, so you'll have to elaborate on that close-to-face pixelation solution, and why it would work better than what's used in current VR headsets.

The sensation of actual VR (see: HTC Vive) is miles ahead of what you just described. It's probably useless to try to explain in detail; you'll just need to try it for yourself.

The simple truth is that nobody really knows how deep the VR well will go and when/if it will run dry.

But one thing's for sure: mobile phone VR doesn't hold a candle to HTC Vive.

My point is, regardless of which component is doing the alternating, at the end of the day the left and right images are being seeing by your eye at different timings.
