LG electronics in collaboration with Wikitude has announced the world’s first 3D Augmented Reality browser on its upcoming LG Optimus 3D smart phone. The Wikitude 3D browser will allow for better interaction and engagement with real-time user environments.
2D Augmented Reality only displays overlapped objects but with 3D Augmented Reality you will be able to see places, landmarks and objects in 3D making them easier to distinguish. The browser allows will allow users to discover details about their surroundings and access related Wikipedia articles and Twitter information.
“Augmented Reality technology has been praised for its potential to replace the ‘abstract’ realities of standard mobile browsers with ‘actual’ reality streamed through the camera of the smartphone,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, CEO and President of LG Mobile Communica-tions Company. “LG’s cutting-edge hardware and 3D API software technology now pushes this reality a step further.”
The LG Optimus 3D also is the first of its kind to include the world’s first dual-core, dual-channel, dual-memory architecture, as well as the first full 3D platform providing glasses-free viewing, recording and sharing of 3D content.
