Poppy Kickstarter Project Aims to Turn the iPhone into a 3D Camera
Poppy is an iPhone accessory that looks like a cross between a set of binoculars and the View-Master toys designed for children. Poppy morphs the iPhone into a 3D image viewer and camera, which can be used to capture 3D videos and photos.
The device itself functions similarly to a View-Master, with two eyepieces to look through and a top slot where the iPhone is inserted. When the iPhone is firmly in place, Poppy can be used to record 3D photos and videos and view the 3D content that others have created via YouTube.
Poppy is capable of viewing YouTube's entire catalog of 3D content, and according to the creators, 3D content on Poppy looks much better than with traditional 3D glasses.
There are no electronics inside Poppy, which instead uses a system of mirrors to record two stereoscopic images through the iPhone's camera, which are then combined into one 3D image or video.

3D is cool.
3D recording and playback for $49? Even better.

Even though the 3DS cameras are very low res, I find myself looking more through my 3DS photos than my iPhoto or SLR ones (once processed). Maybe I'm a sucker for 3D.
Maybe if everyone who'd ever been close to you had died, you'd be sarcastic, too.
