iPhone 4 (and iPhone5?) goes 3D Thanks to 3DCone
The 3D cone pictured here under wants to change your 2D iPhone cam into a stereoscopic 3D camera by letting you take two quick pictures at the same time from slightly different angles through the use of a specially positioned mirror.
Current applications that do the same thing require you to take one pic, move to a new location and take another pic, which isn’t so great with moving subjects. All you have to do here is launch the app, take the pic (or video), and you’re done. The result is a side-by-side full color stereoscopic picture that can be easily uploaded to YouTube in 3D, displayed on scree,n or printed on paper in red/cyan anaglyph format.
Like many projects these days, the 3D Cone is trying to raise funds on Kickstarter. A $39 pledge will get you yours, although successful funding at this point is not guaranteed: they’re at $3,700 of the $55,000 they need. If you choose to help them out, you’ll get your case in March 2013.
If enough money is raised, iPhone5 stereoscopic will become a reality too. Check the Kickstarter page to follow the evolution of the 3D Cone backing.
3D Cone is the brainchild of Itamar Roth (New-York, USA).
