This new 3D webcam with two cameras spaced approximately as far apart as human eyes is our anthropomorphic object of the week. Can you feel it, watching you?

The little brother sends two offset images to a computer. Software processes the images according to how they'll be viewed: the camera comes with five sets of blue-red 3-D glasses for use with ordinary monitors, but the software can also output images in the format used by new 3-D displays. The device is compatible with Skype, AOL Instant Messenger, and YouTube. The anthropomorphic design provides you with the slightly uncanny feeling of being observed constantly.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Joyce Nabuurs: To me this question seems to be a logical next step in the emancipation movement of the past century. More and more women entered the workspace, but the responsibility for pregnancy and childrearing remained female.
