Vitrima is a hack that brings 3D vision to your GoPro camera

by • November 28, 2016 • 12s Comments

If there was a product which may manufacture you dig out your dust-collecting GoPro of the “misc” drawer and turn it into a 3D-filming camera, may you buy it? Of course you may; 737 folks said “yes, please” in the Vitrima Indiegogo campaign, backing it to breathe a few life into their GoPros. Shipping nowadays, the product is on the market to order for $145 of the company’s website.

With the Vitrima 3D video lens, GoPro HERO3 and HERO4 users are offered the design to add a layer of immersion to their action-camera antics. The product fundamentally adds a pair of periscopes to your GoPro. On the left side of the camera it films the left eye, and I’ll leave it to an exercise for the reader to figure out what takes place on the other side of the assembly. The video can be saw back without any extra
processing; play it on your phone via a Google Cardboard-type setup and you are excellent to go with attractive 3D video. Cheap, pleased and effortless as can be.

“With the Vitrima lens, GoPro users are not just recording a video but a full experience which can be relived,” Colin Marshall, vice president of Vitrima told me. “We set out to turn it into a 3D GoPro camera which not just allowed GoPro fans to share their experiences with anyone and everyone, but in addition is easy to use and affordable.”

The Vitrima product is fairly much like to Kúla’s 3D beam splitter lens for SLR cameras. Incidentally, Kúla not long ago revealed Bebe, a design aimed at smartphone users. Alongside Vitrima’s GoPro design, it appears like this market is now filling up with designs for fans of lens-splitting 3D photos and video footage.

For such a easy solution, you’d be forgiven for considering which the final outcome does not appear excellent, but you’d be wrong. Check out the video at a lower place, for example, illustrating attractively how the innovation works. The Vitrima has an edge over Kúla’s products, reflecting its action sports credentials: By sealing the unit, it means it’s far simpler to clean the lenses when they invariably get covered in snow, mud, water or whatever else the byproducts of your no doubt tech-unfriendly extreme sports life can be.
