Letting you take stereoscopic pictures and videos in retro style, the Poppy iPhone attachment turns your smartphone into a cheap 3D camera. Shaped like a Viewmaster, the Poppy attaches to your smartphone so that you can create 3D media.

All you have to do is open an iPhone app and pop your phone into the gadget. You can either use popular apps such as Vine or download the dedicated Poppy app. The app allows you to capture 3D content and upload it to YouTube. Since YouTube has 3D features, your friends can see your freshly made videos.

The bulky device works by using a series of mirrors to feed images to your phone. No electronics other than your smartphone are needed. Poppy's mirrors capture the scene before you to produce two adjacent images.
