Binocular-camera takes photos in 3D
$2,000 device combines cameras and binoculars
For some reason we seem to be given to View-Master" we had when we were kids.today, so we beg your indulgence. This item, for example, reminds us of the 3D-slide "
The "StereoVision 3D VuCam" is slightly more sophisticated than what Fisher-Price had to offer. This gadget combines binocular lenses with two 3.1-megapixel cameras to take 3D photos, according to Gearfuse. You can even magnify the image first, previewing it on a pop-up LCD screen before shooting.
Now comes the tricky part--actually viewing the pictures in 3D. To see them with the naked eye you need a 3D monitor, which isn't exactly a household item (yet). But you can always use the old 3D glasses too. We just recommend that you don't use the folding-cardboard variety, as they wouldn't quite seem appropriate for a piece of equipment that costs $2,000.
