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?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
