Supposedly for 3D effects

Gadget Lab

The disturbing trend of technological mutation that has taken hold of the computer industry has apparently been extended to cameras. Case in point: the "120 Tri-lense Stereo Camera."

Why would anyone want or need three lenses, especially in a camera that uses film? According to Gadget Lab, China-based 3D World claims that its camera can produce two slides that "combine to produce an image that gives an illusion of three-dimensional depth." There's apparently a catch, though, as you need one of its viewers to make the whole thing work. But that's the best part, because Gadget Lab says one of them is coin operated!
