    As dorky as it looks, these could actually be kind of fun. Especially at the reasonable price. I'll check out the reviews once it's out and perhaps I'll grab one myself.


    Ok so they can make a 3D add-on for the the ipod touch or iphone, before they can make a freaking D-Pad really????
    They can and they did:

    and possibly http://www.cp-design.com.au/portfolio/iphone-game-pad/

    two words.

    What would be really cool is to plug your iPhone into this, then have a headstrap so you can go handsfree! THEN all they need to do is provide some kind of Augmented Reality app where -- now this is the really awesome part -- you can look through the binoculars and see what your nice HD camera sees -- BUT IN 3D!

    Imagine looking through this thing and seeing the world around you in 3D!
    It will almost be like real life!

    Genius!

    Wouldnt it just be awesome if it could turn your Ip4 camera pics into 3D pictures? would b cool idea if it was possible

    Hellooo, thats for home use most of the time, so you can play on your bed or living room. The society controls you, I dont care about what they say, If I want to use it, I use it, I control the society and Im sure if they see you with one of them, they are going to be crazy to try it out.
    Took the words outta my mouth, and you bet I'd wanna try it out! Haha anything new is always an eye catcher and ppl always want to kno what it is and try it out. Pretty cool gadget even if it's just for pictures..

    I don't mean to sound negative. But aren't there better things in technology to pushing besides 3d crap. Everything is 3d this 3d that these days and it's not even that cool

    This, along with 3D TVs and movies is, in my opinion, just stupid. I am happy that for once I am not chomping at the bit to get the newest technology. If things go the way of 3D devices I am sure I will convert over eventually, but I can finally wait until prices come down BEFORE buying

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    It's funny how much profit they turn. Come on, you know this thing is a 15˘ piece of plastic to them.

    Maybe, in raw materials.
    Add in these costs:
    Production Machinery
    Fuel for the machines (electric or otherwise)
    Packaging
    Labor
    Warehousing
    Shipping
    Marketing
    Licensing fees/royalties
    Patents
    Management

    There's more, but that list illustrates my point.

    They're realistically going to be lucky to make 8% profit, and the $30 is retail not wholesale. Walmart sells at retail prices, they BUY at wholesale, so the wholesale cost is probably only $18-$20 each.
    It's not where you've been, or where you're going..
    It's where you are.

    I think many of you are missing the point. It's not meant to be worn around and played while on the subway, it's a toy..from HASBRO...that does 3D...on a BEAUTIFUL screen. Think of it like the future kaleidoscope.

    That price is great as well. Excited to see where this goes. I think it would be fun to have one with the galaxy

    Why are people always on edge and so serious on this forum? And while talking about a toy? I seriously wonder how you're supposed to interact with your device while it's in there though.

    You have got to be an complete idiot to use something that looks like binoculars to look at your phone. Come on, how stupid would that look.
    Well think about it for a minute...you will only be using this at home most likely. Unless you wanna carry it around REALLY bad. Yeah you might look stupid but for $30 to add true 3D to just about anything, I'll give it a try.
