Turn your iPhone into a 3D Camera

Turn your iPhone into a 3D Camera:

Remember the old ViewMaster toys? All you had to do was put in one of the special cartridges and you could go “sightseeing” in 3D. Well with this new Kickstarter project called ‘Poppy’ you can turn your iPhone into a cool 3D camera.
Poppy works with iPhone 4, 4S, iPhone 5 and the fifth generation iPod Touch. You put your phone in and Poppy’s mirrors capture two stereographic images using your iPhone’s single camera. When you look in the viewfinder, Poppy’s lenses combine the two video streams into a single, crisp, 3D video. It doesn’t need batteries and there are no electronics. It’s just optics and your iPhone’s camera and screen. Cool right?
