A new device has been created called Poppy that allows you to easily capture and view 3D video footage directly from and on your Apple iPhone smartphone.
The Poppy 3D device has been designed by Ethan Lowry & Joe Heitzeberg and turns any iPhone into a 3D camera and is the first device in the world to do this. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Poppy 3D project and see it in action.
The Poppy 3D device supports iPhone 4, 4S, iPhone 5 and the fifth generation iPod Touch and once you insert your smartphone the device uses mirrors to capture two stereographic images using your iPhone’s single camera. Then when you look in the viewfinder, Poppy’s lenses combine the two video streams into a single, crisp, 3D video.
“Poppy is great for capturing events like weddings and for action sports, or for just playing with your kids in the backyard. Images and videos captured with Poppy are immersive. Viewing feels like you’re experiencing the original moment again!”
“3D videos on Poppy look much better than 3D content viewed using red/blue glasses. Since YouTube 3D uses the same stereographic image technology that Poppy does, their content plays back in beautiful, full-color, high definition 3D when viewed using Poppy.”
The Poppy 3D project is currently over on the Kickstarter website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Poppy 3D is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Poppy 3D become a reality.
