3D Webcam that follows your head movement

Unlike ordinary webcams, this prototype allows you to explore environment without touching or moving the camera around. The device features two webcams, three servo motors and Arduino controller.

Here’s a video of how it works:

The author of the project says that this webcam can be ideal for conferences where you can explore the room and take a look at everyone or for military servicemen who would like to chat with their family members and feel like they are at home.

The project needs $50,000 and is raising money online. If you are excited about this idea go ahead and support it by donating on Indiegogo.
