LAS VEGAS, US - There are a lot of webcams out there but how many are 3D and look like the character "E.T." from the Steven Spielberg film?

The Minoru 3D Webcam unveiled here on the eve of the opening on Thursday of the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has two cameras spaced about the same distance apart as human eyes.

The British-designed webcam comes with five pairs of special colored glasses to provide the 3D image and a stand that allows it to be perched on a desk or a computer monitor.

The Minoru, which means "reality" in Japanese, can be used with Windows Live Messenger, Skype, AOL instant messenger, OoVoo and other video conferencing systems.

It can take still pictures, record 3D video for YouTube or be used as a normal 2D Webcam.

The Minoru will be available this month and costs US$89.95. --AFP
