Must Have Robot: Minoru 3D Webcam

Minoru (which means "Reality" in Japanese) is a 3D webcam. Hook him up to your PC and his eyes light up. The recipients of your image will see you in 3D on any IM, OoVoo, Skype or other messaging program. Apparently, you can also take 3D images and videos and upload them to YouTube or other social networks. Minoru's software has stereoscopic anaglyphic processing to enable the technology and he is attachable by USB. He comes with 5 pairs of glasses so others can view the 3D imaging when they are not watching episodes of "Chuck". The device also doubles as a standard 2D webcam. We don't know if this is a feasible product at $89.95, but he is cute enough to warrant our Must Have robot this week.
