Aiptek 3D camcorder: Three guesses what it does

The 3D is a budget, USB mini-camcorder--like the Flip Mino and its ilk--but with an extra dimension. The Aiptek sees double with two lenses and two 5-megapixel CMOS sensors, both recording high-definition 720p footage.

Visitors to IT show Computex are treating their eyes to the first affordable 3D camcorder. It's made by Taiwanese company Aiptek and it shoots 3D. It's the imaginatively named Aiptek 3D!

The 3D is a budget, USB mini-camcorder--like the Flip Mino and its ilk--but with an extra dimension. The Aiptek sees double with two lenses and two 5-megapixel CMOS sensors, both recording high-definition 720p footage.

The 2.4-inch 3D panel shows your 3D video with no need for glasses. Red and cyan glasses are included in the box so you can get the benefit of 3D playback on your computer. Video can be uploaded to YouTube in 3D for tri-D fans around the world to watch with their funny glasses.

With a retail price of around $200, the Aiptek 3D is firmly at the other end of the spectrum to the first 3D video camera announced this year, Panasonic's 13-grand 3D camcorder .

If stills are more your bag, the Fujifilm FinePix Real 3D W1 is the first digital 3D still camera.
