About

Our goal at PRO3D is to bring STEREO into the mainstream, we want to make it easy for everyone to explore exotic places - Kom Ombo, Potala, Ararat, Tycho. Places that you may never get to see in person. We want everyone in the world to see the mars landing 'In STEREO' - In Real Time. We have hopes of STEREO Webcams at Burning Man, Times Square, Venice and Tahrir Square. We want grandma to pop in her phone and watch the children open the presents without need of cables, cords, plugs, apps or straps.

We want a sturdy recyclable product that's not made of cardboard.

We do not believe that a box strapped to your head is a viable means of entertainment.

In short we have lofty goals, we have future plans for a simple capture device and other phone and tablet STEREO attachments, but they all start right here with this Kickstarter campaign.

The iPhone 6 Plus is the perfect size for Virtual/Stereo viewing!

PRO3D is compatible with any online video sharing. It loves YouTube's standard 3D tag yt3d:enable=true. It lives and breaths for carriers like Vimeo, Instagram, Netflix and hulu. It's breathtaking when displaying GoPro stereo streams.

First prototype was designed for an early Android tablet, it was made of cardboard and packing tape. The second was printed on a Z-printer.

PRO3D utilizes lens originally designed over 150 years ago. This design was then refined over the next 75 years and became the gold standard in stereo viewing.

We experimented with many other lens - Spherical 37mm, 45mm, and 62's none came close.

Tooling for the main body will be done in Garden Grove California, the injection molding will happen in Rancho Cocamonga California. Screening for the logos and flames will happen in Pomona California. The lens will be tooled and injection molded in Pune India.

Over 94% MADE IN USA

UPDATE:

LENS WILL BE INSTALLED AND READY TO USE!

Risks and challenges

Challenges? It's raining challenges up in here.

I'm plenty familiar with tool design and injection molding, in fact I've brought in vendors that I've worked with before. I could not find a state side vendor to do the lens so I searched internationally. I found the guys in India and I thought so much of them that I decided to go with them. These guys love this stuff and went to great end to get pricing where it needed to be.

I've brought in Aaron Kanai to do logistics and packaging, Damon Hunter for distribution, Ann Monn for airbrush. I've also talked Laura Hess to handle the books and dealing with India.

I think that with this team there are no obstacles we can't overcome.

Thank you for your support!
