The camera has two lenses that are set apart. Each lens exposes a different picture at the moment the exposure is made. Because the lenses are set apart the resulting two negatives are slightly different, and when each print from these negatives is viewed correctly with a special viewer so that what the left hand lens took can only be viewed with the left eye, and so with the right - the images combine to form a 3 dimensional image. It's wonderful and slightly odd, pictures of people at about 3 metres appear as though they are cardboard cutouts!
