With Toy Story 3 earning just shy of £40million during the first two weeks of its release, geeks still reeling from the beauty of Avatar, and all of Hollywood being a-flutter about 3D, you’d almost think there’s some sort of trend going on, or something.
It’s not just in the cinemas the revolution is raging: Sky is announcing the arrival of a new 3D channel later this year. It seems 3D has taken over our cinemas and is now making its way into our living rooms.
Firebox is jumping on the bandwagon, and is giving mere slobs chance to get a piece of the action, with a HD 3-D Camera priced only £199.99. Awesome stuff.
This sleek, portable camera has been developed by the German technology firm Aiptek. It’ll have you recording in 3D super easily, without breaking the bank – sure as hell a lot more affordable than the $2,000 version from Panasonic…
The little gem uses two separate lenses and image sensors to record videos in 3D.
Watching it couldn’t be easier: You can playback your recording immediately on the device, upload it straight onto YouTube 3D using the embedded USB connector and 3D glasses (included), or watch it on your fancy-pants 3D TV, through the supplied HDMI cable.
The battery will last for up to 1.5 hours and has an expandable memory suited for 32GB SD cards.
The Aiptek 3D Camera is available now from Firebox.com, and will set you back the princely sum of £199.99.
