GoPro goes 3D
Last summer I got my hands on the GoPro Motorsports Hero HD camera and camcorder. The little camera is designed to mount just about anywhere be it to your windshield, outside the car, or to a helmet or other surface. The camera records in HD resolution and is very rugged as well.

GoPro has announced a new camera in its line called the 3D Hero. The 3D Hero is a waterproof 3D expansion system for the camera that is available for $99.99. The system combines a pair of normal GoPro cameras to get a single 3D image. The system is hailed as the world's smallest and cheapest 3D camera and it is waterproof to 180-feet. It can be worn on the body, mounted on vehicles, and used as a handheld camera too. A sync cable between the two cameras keeps them in tune for capturing 3D. One shutter button controls both of the cameras.
"The 3D HERO System is exciting for a lot of reasons, one of them being that it's not just a 3D camera. It's really several cameras in one, depending on how the consumer wants to use it," says Nicholas Woodman, GoPro's founder and CEO. "That you can take two GoPro cameras that you would normally use independently and combined them to form a new type of camera, a 3D camera...that's extremely cool. GoPro is excited to be the first company to build a camera this versatile."

The housing is 5-inches in length and 2.5-inches high and works with all existing GoPro accessories. The cameras are not included and cost $259 each.
