The IPOD-Photo Stereoscope

Ok I have seen some bizzar ipod mods but to go back in time to recrating and old tecnology using a new tecnology. Just does not add up to me, but if you want to read more go here.

In the early days of photography, stereoscopic viewing was all the rage, it is estimated that over half the households in the UK and US owned a stereoscope. Photographers travelled the world taking stereoscopic photographs for a population who were unable to travel widely themselves. Fast forward 100 years and with the help of what is now an antique stereoscope, a digital camera, and a device such as an IPOD-Photo, one can once again view colour stereopair images without specialised computer hardware.
