Stereo Pi - An open source stereoscopic camera based on Raspberry Pi

Stereo Pi project image.

A new Raspberry Pi project is being crowd sourced to provide a way of connecting two Raspberry Pi cameras to a single board to make a stereo video camera.

According to the crowd source description, "The board is the ultimate interface between two cameras and a Raspberry Pi Compute Module. It comes with all the bells and whistles, including Ethernet, dual USB ports, GPIO header, microSD slot, HDMI output, and more. To use this board, you will need your own Raspberry Pi Compute Module, cameras, camera ribbon cables, and power cable."

Additional items are available for those who donate larger amounts to the fund the project. As of early February, the project had been 68% funded. Sample videos made from the concept version are available on the Stereo Pi crowd source page.

IPhone and iPad with Laser-powered 3-D Cameras to Launch in 2020

Apple is planning to launch a new iPhone and a new iPad with "3-D AR cameras" in 2020..

The camera can help create a three-dimensional scan of the real world and "allow for more accurate depth perception and placement of virtual objects."

Google once had a similar technology it called Project Tango. It was also able to scan and create a 3-D model of a room, but the project was ultimately shut down.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has said that augmented reality, or AR, is an important part of the company's future. The latest iPhones already support augmented reality apps, which allow you to drop digital items on top of the real world and view them through the iPhone. In the Ikea app, for example, you can drop a digital piece of furniture in your living room to see how it looks and if it fits in your room before you buy it.

"And with things like AR … I think it becomes even more essential than it currently is. I know it's hard to believe, but I think that's the case," Tim Cook told CNBC in August 2017. Apple hasn't yet really shown how AR will become even more important than it already is. Reports have suggested that Apple plans to one day launch glasses with support for AR.

3-D cameras have been used in phones before. In 2011, LG launched the Optimus 3-D, which let users snap 3-D pictures and then view them without 3-D glasses on the phone's 3-D display. But the quality was low, and 3-D phones never took off.

The Wall Street Journal said earlier this month that Apple plans to launch three new iPhones in September, including one with three cameras.
