Hypergonar HiFi2: The most amazing Anamorphic DIY Adapter to capturing a widescreen picture on standard 35 mm DSLR

What is Anamorphic format:

Anamorphic format is a term that can be used either for: the cinematography technique of capturing a widescreen picture on standard 35 mm film, or other visual recording media, with a non-widescreen native aspect ratio; or a photographic projection format in which the original image requires an optical anamorphic lens to recreate the original aspect ratio. It should not be confused with anamorphic widescreen, which is a very different electronically based video encoding concept that uses similar principles to the anamorphic format but different means.  ( via wikipedia )

So where can I get one of these 35mm projection lenses?
Is this the right type of thing?
