Minoru perches on monitor

Perches perfectly on your monitor

Despite what most webcams would have you believe, the world around us is not flat. It’s 3D, innit? And that’s precisely why the idiot-proof Minoru 3D Webcam is such a groundbreaking gizmo. In fact it’s the world’s first 3D webcam!

Capable of creating a mind-blowing stereoscopic effect, this USB-friendly camera will have you and your online buddies cowering behind your keyboards in awe as noses, fingers and anything else you’d care to thrust forth are given genuine depth and incredible reach-out-and-touch realism.

Minoru's 3D view!


Yes, you’ve got to wear a pair of old-school 3D glasses but that just adds to the fun – well we think it does ‘cos they look really silly. Besides, who cares about faintly ridiculous face furniture when friends and family can see you in eye-popping 3D, over messaging programs such as Windows Live Messenger, Skype, AOL Instant Messenger, OoVoo and many more. You can even use this three-legged thingamabob to take 3D photos and shoot 3D videos which you can upload to YouTube.

Makes real life look more like real life!

Particularly impressive if you know any long-nosed, spear-wielding dinosaurs, the Minoru (which means ‘reality’ in Japanese) features dual cameras spaced about a face-width apart. Don’t ask why, we’ve been too busy jabbing rubber sharks at ours to bother with the boring techie stuff.

Put your 3D movies on Youtube with Minoru!

Create your own 3D movies!

Speaking of sharks, setting up the Minoru is easier than spotting the bad acting in Jaws 3D – simply attach the cam to your screen using its springy legs, hook up to your PC’s USB port, set the red and blue levels and you’re away. This strange crittercam even has eyes that light up as it watches you in gobsmacking 3D. Cripes!

On the off chance you tire of all this 3D business, the Minoru also functions as a regular 2D webcam. But that’s really rather humdrum, because once you’ve experienced life in the third dimension nothing else will do!

Customer Reviews

Does the webcam support mac osx and if it does could I use it on photo booth.

Firebox says: Hi Micheal, Sorry this only supports Windows!
3D glasses included? I don't think so....
Rory - 25th December 2011
Firebox says: Oh Dear, did you not get your glasses? let us know on and we can get this sorted for you
Can this be used to put 3D videos on 3DS?
Blah - 30th November 2011
Firebox says: Hi, In answer to your question you will not be able to make 3D ready movies for the 3DS as the 3DS uses a different formatted auto-stereoscopic type of video.
Hi firebox. I have a quick question. How long is the usb cable?
Gav - 11th April 2011
Firebox says: The USB Cable is approximately 180cm long.
Ok, I know this is probably an incredibly stupid question, but how do I turn off the 3D for a bit? I can't figure out how to so when video chatting my friends have to put up with me being blue and red.
Lily - 5th February 2011
Firebox says: You should just be able to right click on the Minoru icon on the System Tray Bar (bottom right of screen) and select 'Mode' - '2D.' If this doesn't work, or your still having problems, drop us an e-mail to and we'll see what more we can do for you.
Just to let you know that the Minoru 3D webcam works with Windows 7 as well as Vista and XP. The latest software from www. Minoru3d. Com is needed but the webcam is definitely Windows 7 compatible. Best regards Martin.
Martin - 5th January 2011
Firebox says: Thanks Martin! That is absolutely right.
