In today’s world everything is totally high-tech. Talk about mobiles or computers, even the switch boards that we use in our home are remote controlled these days. Though excess of everything is bad, however if these cool gadgets are used only when needed can enhance the quality of work and helps us in smooth functioning of daily tasks. And this time I would like to discuss 3D webcam.
This web cam shows a new 3D world. It has got the dual mode cameras that record everything in such a way that requires red and blue glasses. You can make 3D Videos, click 3D images as well. It name is Minoru, which is word in Japanese, that means Reality. Just like any other web cam of this world it is very easy to connect and uses the traditional USB port of our PC’s. It comes with stereoscopic anaglyphic processing software that guides web cam to capture image in 3D. Now this image can be viewed by using any commonly available red and cyan glasses. The image captured by this webcam is easily viewable in 2D glasses as well.
Imagine you are talking to your friend in abroad and he is able to see your 3-D live. Moreover it accepts Google Talk, Skype, Windows Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger and all the video chat supporting messengers.
