article imageWorld's First Consumer 3D Webcam Launches at CES

By Naved Akhtar     Jan 10, 2009 in Technology
UK-based firm Promotion and Display Technology Ltd (PDT) has been showing off its Minoru 3D webcam at the CES show in Las Vegas this week.
The Minoru 3D webcam consists of two camera lenses which are spaced roughly the same distance apart as human eyes. Images captured by Minoru are then turned into 3D footage. The footage can be viewed in 3D by anyone wearing red and blue 3D glasses. The word “Minoru” means “reality” in Japanese which accurately reflects how users feel about the images captured by the webcam.
Minoru is similar to other webcams in that it connects easily to your PCs USB port with the added feature that it will work without having to install drivers. It can be used for 3D photos, to shoot 3D videos, as a standard 2D webcam or for videoconferencing purposes. Minoru is compatible with YouTube, Windows Live Messenger, Skype, AOL and many others.
Minoru has a multi-position stand that can sit or stand on a desk or perch on a monitor. It also comes complete with five pairs of 3D glasses. Minoru is now available to order from Amazon in the US or UK. Alternatively in the UK it is available from Firebox.com or direct from the manufacturer’s website (www.minoru3d.com). It is priced at $89.95 in the US and £49.95 in the UK. In the EU it will cost €79.95 and will soon be available from major electronics retailers.
