Just what I needed; an excuse to buy two iPods at once!

I think I may need an iPod Photo stereoscope. I can't believe I hadn't thought of this already.

It's more a proof-of-concept idea. I'm already using my Clié TH55 to carry stereo pairs around with me. The Clié has a screen resolution of 480x320, so a vertical pair has resolution of 240x320. By comparison, the iPod photo is 220x176. With this stereoscope you'd be able to see every pixel. A little while ago there was a Nokia product called the Kaleidoscope; it struck me at the time that a pair of these would make an excellent electronic Viewmaster, but again, screen resolution (270x228) is just too low.

The advantage of the iPod photo solution is, of course, that you can store all your stereo photos; and, as the writer suggests, you can output from S video to a dual projector set up with fabulous quality.

Now that's just getting silly!

Okay. That's brillant.

(And you could have a quadrophonic soundtrack, as well.)
