Webcam in 3D With Retro Glasses

Conferencing with your favorite pals over webcam no longer has to be a two dimensional affair. Hammacher Schlemmer is now selling what it claims to be "the only 3D Web Camera."

As with how stereoscopic vision works, the 3D webcam uses two cameras to capture video at 800 x 600 resolution at 15 frames per second, which can focus up to 12 feet away.

While we haven't yet gotten hands-on with one, we're a little disappointed that it'll be using the old-fashioned blue and red 3D glasses method (five pairs are included with the camera, and the total package runs for $100), which will alter the true colors of the image. Of course, it is probably the most economical and compatible solution.
