Tim here: And it's here! Turn your iPhone into a 3D camera! Tim here, and one of my cousins forwarded me a link to this nifty new toy for your iPhone. I haven't gotten a chance to test it out yet, but I'm mighty curious!
From Poppy's Website (emphasis mine):
Poppy lets you capture beautiful images and videos in 3D using your iPhone's camera. Viewing through Poppy is immersive. It feels like loking into another world. It's a whole new way to capture and share your own experiences. Most of all, it's a lot of fun.They even have a neat little video, which I've embeded below, of real world people testing it out. It's more than just a camera as it also allows you to view Stereoscopic 3D content playing through your iPhone. This will be great for the kids on those long car trips, when flying commercially, or just lounging aroudn the home. Check out the video!
How does it work?
Just put your iPhone in and begin capturing 3D video and pictures. Immediately view in 3D, or share and browse 3D from around the world. Poppy uses mirrors to capture two stereographic images using your iPhone's single camera. When you look in the viewfinder, Poppy's lenses combine the two images into a single 3D view.
It's available for $59.95 (USD), which is a bit pricy if you were to buy a set of four for a family. However, considering what most people pay for their iPhone's it's only a fraction of the cost of the phone for one.
