Sanwa iPhone Stereoscope

The Sanwa (Japan) 400-CAM021 Stereoscope turns your iPhone into sort of a 3D View Master, allowing you to watch YouTube stereoscopic movies and side-by-side stereoscopic pairs.

The 400-CAM021 turns the iPhone into a big-screen 3D TV as the image viewed through the device is the same you may enjoy on a 60 inches 3DTV screen seen from 10 feet away. However, the resolution is a tad lower than on TV as the iPhone 4's Retina display gives you only 480(W) by 640 (H) pixels per eye; the iPhone has to share its 960 pixels per horizontal line between both eyes.

The Sanwa stereoscope is also available on the Japanese Yahoo store. Expect the price to double is you ask for transcontinental shipping.
