INVENTING NEW MEDIA

KIT COMPONENTS FOR STEREOSCOPIC HEADSET

So all the components are here after a fair bit of research – I ended up buying…

  • 2 x GOPRO HD HERO  2 – outdoor edition
  • 1 x GOPRO HD HERO SKELETON (for accessible in/outputs)
  • 2 x GOPRO LCD Bacpac
  • 1 x SOUNDMAN OKM II CLASSIC BINAURAL A3 ADAPTER
  • 1 x VINTAGE SAWYERS VIEWMASTER VIEWER

Having jumped into the deep end with it all the tests I have done fill me with confidence – the HD HERO jack input records great stereo sound from the binaural mics and holding the LCD screens in place to the Viewmaster is giving me 3D playback.

For clarity on left and right set ups I have labelled the cameras and there SD cards with the alliterated Leonardo and Raphael. Now it is just a case of hacking open the solid Viewmaster and finding a way of fitting the LCD screens so it sits inside the goggle lenses depth of field so that they are in focus. I hope to go more technical than gaffa tape at this point – but I wouldn’t rule it out!
