In the human visual system, binocular unpaired regions, where binocular images do not correspond to each other, play a very important role on stereo perception. In our recent experiments, we found that binocular unpaired regions give a special effect on the volume perception of solid objects with curved surfaces. In this paper, we shall introduce phenomena of volume perception, and then propose some strategies for realizing such function on a computer vision system.
