Turn Your Camera into a 3D Camera
This project by Icelandic developers adds a mirror contraption to the front of the lens of your camera to capture stereo images that can then be combined to create a 3D image. There’s a version for DSLRs (the “deeper”) and a version for smartphones like iPhones (“bebe”). Project ends November 20. Oh, and don’t be put off by the currency–it’s Danish Krona. 1 DKK is about 17 cents in USD.

Project ends November 3.
An Inexpensive High Frame Rate Camera
Love to capture footage at 1000fps or higher? Typically that means shelling out some serious bucks. This project aims to make it much more economical as well as being very portable. It looks intriguing, although make sure to check out the full resolution video examples so you have realistic expectations of the video quality. Project ends November 5.
Abandoned Historical Sites Related to Space Exploration
“Abandoned In Place is a photographic exploration of the American space launch and research facilities that played a crucial role in the early period of space exploration. The goals of this project are to preserve and portray these abandoned, deactivated, and repurposed sites through photography that surpasses the official government approach to documentation and to lend historical and artistic insight to the subject.” Funding goes toward defraying the publication costs. Project ends November 17.

Help a 9-year-old Fulfill a Dream to Take Photos of Australian Nature
Alas, this one’s a long shot for being funded, but it’s a shame–it resonates with me having grown up in Australia. From the project blurb: “This is my son Trey’s dream. He is an amateur nature photographer obsessed with all things Down Under. He is hoping to go to Australia on a 4 week trip to photograph the unique plants and animals. The culmination of the trip will be a photography exhibit at the Audubon Society Center at Pomfret, CT’ s beautiful hall. Trey will also be able to display his work at his school since they are studying Australia for their international week this year.” Project ends November 4.
