Justin.tv.3D hat

3d camera hat
(+2, -2)
  [vote for,

This would be a baseball cap with two camera-microphones hooked onto either side, so that a 3D image of the wearer's life can be experienced remotely by a person crossing their eyes magic-eye-style and focusing on the two video feeds set side by side on a web page, and listening to a stereo version of the audio. Effects could be generated by turning the baseball cap into a jesters hat with the two cameras and microphones being separated widely for an exagerated 3D effect, both auditorily and visually. Maybe Justin.tv (link) can be turned into a you-tube-like phenomena where camera-wearers compete to do the craziest stuff so that fans can vicariously experience what it is like to, say walk naked into a high society ball or give a crazy improptu speech in a conservative setting. Eye contact would become very important.

       So, like, a continuous video of someone doing interesting stuff, in which everything is visible in 3D apart from the person doing the interesting stuff? Cool.

       How can you have eye contact if you're cross-eyed??
DrCurry, Apr 02 2007

       you could have eye contact with two different people at the same time..

       I tried very hard while crossing my eyes to make them contact. My nose was the problem.

       Magic-eye-style crossed eyes is brilliant. Guess that eliminates the need for special 3-D glasses with polarized or red-blue or timed-shutter lenses. The youtube-like competition between camera-wearers seems like that would only a couple steps shy of the feelies from Aldous Huxley's _Brave New World_ and the virtual reality stuff from the movie _Strange Days_. Thanks for the insightful post.
