Device Turns iPhones Into 3D Cameras
Poppy turns your Apple smartphone images into 3D photos or videos.
Poppy is an accessory that turns any iPhone or fifth generation iPod Touch into a 3D camera and modern-day Viewmaster.
Poppy looks like a pair of wide rectangular binoculars that has a slot where you can insert your iPhone or iPod. Mirrors inside the device capture two stereographic images using the iPhone’s cameras and then its lenses combine these images into a 3D photo or video when viewed through the viewfinder.
The device works with any camera or video app, but the developers have also created a dedicated app for Poppy. Poppy can also be used to view 3D content like photos and videos from the 3D channel of YouTube.
Poppy was created by Snapvine co-founder Joe Heitzberg and Urbanspoon co-founder Ethan Lowry. They recently launched a Kickstarter project which ends July 26th.
