Researchers from the Center for Research and Advanced Studies (CINVESTAV) in Mexico have developed a pair of glasses that use a combination of ultrasound, GPS, stereoscopic vision and artificial intelligence to help the visually impaired to navigate their environment. The device, perhaps the most sophisticated of its kind, is slated to reach mass production early next year and will likely cost up to US$1,500.  Read More

With a design modeled after an old Viewmaster, the Poppy uses an iPhone's own camera to ca...

There are several methods for creating 3D images with an iPhone, and most of those involve just altering an existing image using an app. With the Poppy, you'll be able to shoot your own 3D images and video instantly with just your iPhone. According to the developers, the stereoscopic images produced with a Poppy and an iPhone's HD camera lend a true sense of immersion to your typical snapshots.  Read More

Vuzix's Wrap 1200AR see-through Augmented Reality glasses, featuring two independent stere...

Adding to its previously released set of video eye-wear glasses, the Wrap 1200, Vuzix is now shipping the Wrap 1200AR. The AR (Augmented Reality) part of the tag is thanks to the addition of a stereoscopic camera pair mounted on the frames, which support VGA video capture at 30 frames per second and enable the display of 3D or 2D AR content.  Read More

The 3Dcone is an attachment for the iPhone that allows it to capture stereo pair images

3DCone is one of the latest add-ons for the iPhone 4/4S promoting the capture of 3D imagery and video. Using a clip-on attachment equipped with a mirror and dedicated app, 3DCone captures and processes stereo pair images ready for uploading to YouTube 3D.  Read More

The Sansa 3D viewer displays 3D YouTube content using an iPhone

Wanting to jump on the 3D bandwagon but don’t have the cash to lay down for a big screen 3D TV or even a Nintendo 3DS? This 3D viewer from Japan’s Sanwa provides a cheap and easy way to enjoy 3D YouTube content on an iPhone. Functioning like the venerable View-Master stereoscopic viewer or more recent MY3D viewer from Hasbro, the device sends the left/right images from 3D videos in the side-by-side format (yt3D) to the appropriate eyeball.  Read More

Image3D allows customers to create custom View-Master-like photo reels, using their own ph...

Along with GI Joes, Slinkies and Sea Monkeys, View-Masters are probably one of the most-remembered childhood products of the past few generations. Even if you yourself never got the chance to flip through disks of still images using one of the manually-operated stereoscopic viewers, chances are you at least knew someone who did. Well, now that you're all grown-up, you have the chance not only to relive your childhood by buying a View-Master-like Image3D viewer, but also to create a reel of your own photos to view in it. As a ten year-old, you would have thought that was pretty amazing.  Read More

'The peep show because it represents a part of Americana that has been forgotten' (Photo: ...

Hard though it may be to believe for anyone raised since the advent of VCRs, there was a time when people actually had to leave their homes to see adult movies. Going to sleazy cinemas ended up being the main option, although it was predated by a little something known as the peep show machine. Now largely forgotten, these pieces of erotic entertainment history were once a common sight in penny arcades, fair grounds and other sometimes-questionable locales. So, what would one would look like if it were built using today's technology? California's Michael Ford decided to find out.  Read More

Researchers have developed a camera system that snaps multi-gigabit images at 30 frames pe...

Cameras that can shoot 3D images are nothing new, but they don't really capture three dimensional moments at all - they actually record images in stereoscopic format, using two 2D images to create the illusion of depth. These photos and videos certainly offer a departure from their conventional two dimensional counterparts, but if you shift your view point, the picture remains the same. Researchers from Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) hope to change all that with the development of a strange-looking camera that snaps 360 degrees of simultaneous images and then reconstructs the images in 3D.  Read More

NVIDIA is targeting the professional market with its 3D Vision Pro solution

It seems that barely a day goes by without some new 3D product hitting the shelves. With 3D technology having obvious applications for engineers, designers, architects and computational chemists it’s not surprising to see NVIDIA is set to bring out a new 3D stereoscopic solution aimed at just these markets. The company’s 3D Vision Pro brings true stereo 3D to the desktop along with support for LCD panels to offer a practical way to provide a 3D viewing experience for large scale visualization environments like video walls and collaborative virtual environments (CAVEs).  Read More

The Lens-in-a-Cap system captures two simultaneous images using matched lenses to the left...

The Lens-in-a-Cap stereo lens system from Loreo mounts to the front of a digital SLR body to allow users to take side-by-side 3D photographic images. Mounts are available for a host of popular digital SLR cameras and the system will automatically adjust image pitch to suit subject distance. Subsequent images can then be printed out or viewed on a computer screen via a cheap cardboard parallel format viewer.  Read More
