"We have no idea if this actually works worth a damn, but the camera looks so freaky that it deserves some attention.

So hail and huzzah to the 120 Tri-lens Stereo Camera from China's 3D World.

As the name implies, the medium-format film camera has not one, not two, but three lenses, each positioned at a specific offset from the others.

The camera interpolates between the three views to produce two slides. Once inserted in one of the company's viewers -- handheld, tabletop and coin-operated models are available -- the slides combine to produce an image that gives an illusion of three-dimensional depth.

Pricing and availability info seem to be buried in one of the company's Mandarin character-set announcements.

And now we will pause to reflect on the golden days of stereoscopic imaging."
