I love it when people get creative.
Some guys over at the ZURB Blog came up with a way to get 3D video out of two iPod Nanos! Here’s their configuration.
And below is one of their resulting videos. Here, it just shows the two virtually identical shots side by side. But if you go watch it at You Tube, you can click a little “3D” on the bottom right of the player and you can see it mixed in any one of a dozen ways. Without the 3D glasses it looks like a bum acid trip, but with them it’s pretty convincing. (All 3D looks horrible without the glasses so please do not get me wrong here.)
Such creativity deserves to be applauded IMHO. 3D is more popular after some recent Hollywood hits, so good to know you can do it on the cheap!
If you want to read more about exactly how they made the very low budget 3D video, then head on over to their blog to read more.
