Razer is making an Intel-powered Kinect for PCs. A 3D-sensing depth camera that uses Intel’s RealSense technology. Why would you want that? Well—Intel says it’ll let anyone put their face into a Twitch game streaming video.
Unless samples and specimens are brought up from the seafloor or researchers hop aboard a submersible, a significant portion of underwater exploration is done in 2D, but that could soon change thanks to the recent installation of a revolutionary new scientific camera rig. We'll never look at the ocean's depths the…
Getting caught in the rain is always a drag. You wind up dashing from awning to awning (or tree to tree) trying desperately to keep yourself—and your expensive gadgets—dry. In this art installation it's always raining, but you never have to worry about getting wet.
Panasonic's dropped two new cameras on the unsuspecting public today: one, the compact DMC-3D1 that shoots 3D, and two, the DMC-GX1 which follows the micro four thirds GF1 model.
Apparently, Nazis were using 3D cameras before any of us thought 3D was dumb. According to Variety, Nazis had developed a 'sophisticated stereoscopic camera' to record athletes as they crossed the finish line in the 1936 Olympics.
It was pretty cool to hear that James Cameron got NASA to put 3D cameras in Curiosity, the next Mars Rover. If 3D is good for anything, it's exploring space and worlds we've never actually seen before (see: Avatar). But alas, NASA decided against it.
We all know about surround sound, but surround sight? I suppose this camera—with 100 small cameras dotted around its sphere—is the all-seeing example, able to see all 360-degrees in 3D.
Consumer trepidation aside, one of the other major issues standing in 3D's way on its march into the mainstream is high production costs. 3D typically means two lenses, but one company, ISee3D, may have perfected a way using just one.
A year after Fujifilm introduced the first 3D camera to us, they've fine-tuned their encore act, the W3—which shoots 3D video in 720p resolution, taking it from VGA to HD.
Not only does it look retro-brilliant, but this Holga 120 can shoot 3D photos, thanks to its dual lenses. Each lens takes a photo, which are printed side-by-side and create a 3D effect when used with a slide viewer.
Fuji's two-eyed 3D consumer camera grinned its way into our lives last week, but Time spared us the details. Now, a proper announcement: the FinePix Real 3D W1 camera shoots 3D stills and video, which can be viewed without glasses.
No, seriously, once you notice this Fuji's lopsided, goofy grin, you just can't unsee it. It beats the concept version's terrifying death stare, I guess. Anyway: the dual-lensed FinePix Real 3D will land stateside in September, for $600. Sort of.
Is there anything better than watching Vincent Price try to sell an insanely complicated 3D camera as simple? No, no there isn't.
Those of you who have always wanted to move around Second Life while actually moving around may be in luck. Linden Lab Chair Mitchell Kapor has teamed up with 3DV Systems to show the Zcam, an inexpensive video camera that can judge when you're leaning forward and backwards. No news yet on whether it can also sense…
