The technology of 3D pictures and 3D cinematography dates back to 1915 and those in the know consider 1950’s to be the “golden age” for it. However it only recently became mainstream and today, we see a large proportion of movies coming out in 3D, a lot of us have 3D TV’s and many of us want to experiment with capturing 3D images and video.
This latter part is usually a little difficult as you need to buy special equipment for the job. Sure, there are 3D cameras that cost as little as EUR 100, but they are usually very limited in their functionality and getting decent video out of them is next to impossible. Especially if you consider yourself a photography/cinematography enthusiast and already own a decent gear set.
One of the most interesting products I saw at Slush was the Memoto camera, a 36x36x9 mm wearable device that takes two geotagged pictures a minute, capturing your life as you move about all day. People have called the Memoto Lifelogging camera anywhere between "Awesome" and a "CIA Conspiracy," but there seems to be way more people that are interested in getting the device.
The Swedish company has thrown their pitch up on Kickstarter, and have raised over $525,000, more than 10 times their original goal. We're a little late to the game here - the product has gotten a lot of international press - but with 51 hours left on their Kickstarter campaign there's still chance to support their cause.
