What appears to be the first mass-produced 3D web camera looks like a friendly robot.

It's actually two cameras that record, according to Hammacher
Schlemmer, "slightly differing images" that are then put together as a
stereoscopic image. It even comes with five pairs of 3D glasses (those
funky cyan/red glasses that used to come in comic books) so you can
invite your friends over to watch your 3D movies.

The webcam only works with PCs that run Windows XP or Vista (it seems likely
that later versions will run on Windows 7), via a built-in USB cable.

The two cameras record video at 800 x 600 resolution, 15 frames per
second, and can focus up to 12 inches away. OK, so it's not going to
look good on an IMAX screen. But it can also be used as a normal camera
or to record two-dimensional picture-in-picture or side-by-side videos.

It's $99.95 and its video is compatible with Windows Live Messanger,
Skype, AOL Instant Messenger, OoVoo, Videora, Windows Movie Maker,
Stereoscopic Player and most other video applications and instant
messaging services.
