The apertures are circular and each has a complementary colored filter (red/cyan or green/magenta) behind each hole. The holes are either side of the center of the filter (can be cut out cardboard, filters can be from 3d glasses).

Do let us know how fisheye lenses work out.
> Prof Dietz, whose instructable this is, has a great video on this, and the information in out of focus image areas generally and how you can use it, for instance, for 3d extraction and bokeh simulation and control. He has made scripts for CHDK for Canon compacts to do some of this stuff with consumer compact cameras.
