Kinect Camera.
The NYTimes had an article today a mentioning  new 3d. -- http:// 
Of course pplayStation just released a 3d screen that doesn't need  
I see the real job of artists to explore the parameters of AR away  
from the corporate/cartoon/games/hollywood -marketing apparatus.
It's one of the greatest things about new media. The hacker culture  
is constantly setting up alternate venues.
  I'm actually in a PD patching circle hosted by Hans Christophe  
Steiner that's hacking the Kinect for PD. Once that project is completed
every artist will have access to the tools.   Right now you can get  
the hacked kinect drivers from Open Kinect and OpenNI.
It's still a little wild and wooly because you need to use command  
line and shell scripts to run the programs.

here's a 3d sketch for my performance -- http://nujus.net/~nublog/?p=214
