GoPro at Interbike 2010

GoPro 3D HERO Housing

GoPro always has some wicked new toy’s at Interbike, and their new Wearable 3D capturing system was quite a treat. The 3D HERO Housing and Sync Cable kit, uses a dual enclosure, that holds a set of HD HERO 1080p cameras (not included with the kit), with an internal camera genlock cable for synchronizing them. Once the footage is captured, you then use a 3D editing software like Neo3D from Cineform, or some other software vendor. I think it might give you a neck ache after wearing the unit for any period of time?

I put on some 3D glasses at the GoPro booth and watched some video footage, and it certainly added a lot of depth and realism to the activities. The enclosure retails for $99, but you will need the two HD HERO’s at $300 each. Not a cheap investment, but it will certainly add some interesting flavor to your sport video’s. I am not sure how the end product will look on the community video sites, since there could be some loss of pertinent information during a download? It is a new medium, so the sites may eventually catch up. The 3D format will make home videos on your big screen a pretty nifty experience, and I will be interested to see how it tests out.
