Minoru Stereo 3D Webcam is Anthropomorphic

British designers have developed a "low cost" 3D webcam system that will launch towards the end of the year. The Minoru webcam has two cameras spaced roughly the same distance apart as human eyes, for the necessary stereoscopic effect. This creates an "anthropomorphic" look that means users tend to look into the eyes of the camera as they light up. The webcam has a multi-position stand that can sit or stand on a desk, or perch on a monitor. Viewers wear special coloured glasses to see the 3D image, with five pairs bundled in with the hardware. The webcam can be used with Windows Live Messenger, Skype, AOL instant messenger, OoVoo and other video conferencing packages. The camera can also be used to take still pictures or record 3D video for YouTube and be used as a "normal" 2D webcam.

The Minoru webcam wants to introduce a paradigm shift where Internet surfing is concerned, relying on both lenses to form a single 3D image, although the viewer will need to wear a pair of 3D glasses in order to see the intended effect

It is compatible with instant messaging services such as Skype, AIM and Windows Live Messenger. According to the manufacturers, the Minoru webcam can also capture 3D photos as well as output 3D video that can be uploaded to video sharing sites such as YouTube.
