Novo introduced the world's first consumer 3D webcam dubbed Minoru. Minoru does not only deliver 3D video, but it also looks stunningly cute.
It is amazing what "two eyes" can do to humans.

The Minoru 3D Webcam is a single piece with two cameras spaced roughly the same distance apart as human eyes, for the stereoscopic effect.
This creates an anthropomorphic look that means users tend to look into the eyes of the camera as they light up. The Webcam has a multi-position stand that can sit or stand on a desk, or perch on a monitor.
Viewers wear special colored glasses to see the 3D image, and five pairs are included. Most likely you can use the same glasses Intel distributes for the first Super Bowl Commercial in 3D. Minoru means “Reality” in Japanese, and it reflects how users feel about the 3D image. The Minoru can be used with Windows Live Messenger, Skype, AOL instant messenger, OoVoo and other video conferencing packages. The camera can also be used to take still pictures or record 3D video for YouTube. It can also be used as a normal 2D Webcam.
The Minoru 3D webcams sells for $89 on the Minoru site.
