Poppy Turns iPhones into a 3D Camera from Kickstarter

How does it work?

Poppy works with iPhone 4, 4S, iPhone 5 and the fifth generation iPod Touch.  You put your phone in and Poppy’s mirrors capture two stereographic images using your iPhone’s single camera.

When you look in the viewfinder, Poppy’s lenses combine the two video streams into a single, crisp, 3D video. It’s beautiful, and really hard to describe or show in two dimensions.

It doesn’t need batteries and there are no electronics. It’s just optics and your iPhone’s camera and screen, so we can keep the price low without sacrificing quality.

That’s not open but it’s incredibly clever and cool 🙂
