A duo in Seattle has invented an iPhone accessory that can turn your smartphone into a 3D camera.

Ethan Lowry and Joe Heitzeberg have set up a Kickstarter campaign for ‘Poppy’ – a device which captures 3D photos and video clips by combining two stereographic images via the iPhone’s single camera.

The campaign started on Wednesday and reached its initial $100k goal in under nine hours, but those interesting in supporting the project have until July 26th to pledge. These users will still be able to get in on the discounted Kickstarter pricing.

As well as just having fun with the usual stuff you take photos and videos of, Poppy believes there are many possibilities for the product such as real estate and architectural walk-throughs.

With YouTube adding support for 3D in 2009, there is a huge library of movie trailers, music videos, sport clips and user-generated content that Poppy users will be able to take advantage of.
