3D is all the rage these days, and if the people behind the Poppy are successful, then you might just be able to transform your iPhone into a 3D camera. If you take a closer look at it, the Poppy sort of looks like a Viewmaster, doesn’t it? That’s because its creators were actually inspired by these stereoscopes that were so popular in the eighties.
The Poppy has a slot in the middle where you’re supposed to insert your iPhone or iPod Touch. Only the iPhone 4, 4S, iPhone 5 and the fifth generation iPod Touch are compatible with the device. There are mirrors in the Poppy which allow your iPhone camera to capture two stereographic images.
Not only can you capture 3D stills, you can also shoot 3D clips and videos with the Poppy. No batteries are required and no electronics are involved. It’s all optics and making do with the device that you have.
Want one? You can the Poppy by making a minimum pledge of $49.
