The now ubiquitous, classic GoPro Helmet HERO was great in its original incarnation. Then it went HD, and that was even better. And now the Helmet HERO is jamming another trick up its waterproof to 180′ casing — it’s going 3-D. OK, that’s not accurate, nothing is getting literally jammed up the waterproof casing. The camera itself will remain unchanged. To shoot 3-D video all you’re going to need is an additional GoPro Helmet Hero wearable camera, some software, and an “Expansion Kit,” which will be available next month. We assume the “Expansion Kit” will include the software (it better for $90) and some way of attaching the two cameras together. It’s hard to tell from the above photo how, exactly, the joining of the cameras is accomplished.
Apparently this development is so exciting, it is Fox News worthy. I am completely apolitical, I will not make any jokes about this, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t make jokes about it in the comments section. Or not. You can also take it very, very seriously…like I may or may not have.
The two cameras will run you about $360, which is significantly less than the cost of one name-brand 3-D camera, and you have the added bonus of being able to break the two cameras apart like a Voltron toy, to use them independently, if you’re feeling crazy. So all you’ll need is the two cameras, the expansion kit, maybe the software, and something to watch it on…
you’ve already got a 3-D monitor right? Heck, my microwave has a 3-D monitor.
