The camera with three lenses

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!
