3D system for GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition

At the time of writing, the 3d hero system on GoPro's web site only refers to the hero and hero 2, but not the hero 3 models.

Does anybody know why, does anybody know if the 3d system is compatible with the hero 3 or if it is not, if a new system is being released?

Or are GoPro working on a new dual lense camera?

I was about to order 2 x hero 3 black edition cameras and the 3d system - having recently purchased a 3d projector so obviously don't want to invest a small fortune in 2 cameras if they are not 3d compatible. This is currently a show stopper so would be very grateful for feedback/advice.


Thanks
Colin

Not released yet. Looks like

Not released yet. Looks like they did have something 3D going on in their promo vid:

Doubt the final product will look anything like that, though.


Here's my basic attempt at a 3D rig:

V2.0 will be built this weekend. Much more lightweight and compact, with access to all buttons.

Thanks for the comments. I

Thanks for the comments.

I did post this question to GoPro direct and have had a response saying "As of now, there is still no 3D Hero System for the HERO3's. This is something that is being developed by our engineering/development team and hopefully will be released in the near future.".

Very vague on timescales & certainty of whether or not it will be released for the hero 3, so I'll hold until it is announced before buying the 2x black editions, just in case they instead release a dedicated 3d version with a dual lens later in the year (not that they made any suggestion to that effect but you never know)..
