LG Optimus 3D brings world’s first 3D Augmented Reality

LG and Wikitude announced today the implementation of the first 3D AR (Augmented Reality) browser on the LG’s new Optimus 3D Android Smartphone.

Thanks to the adoption of the Wikitude 3D browser you will now be able to get real-time information overlapping live videos with a stunning 3D effect that only LG’s Optimus 3D smartphone can bring.

While 2D AR only displays overlapped objects, 3D AR shows places, landmarks and objects in 3D making them easier to distinguish. The browser al-lows users to discover details about their surroundings and access related Wikipedia articles and Twitter information.

Wikitude 3D includes information on over 100 million locations around the world, with contributions from more than 1,000 content providers. The browser currently provides support for 12 languages for now and. users can download Wikitude 3D from LG World, LG`s dedicated application store for free, staring in the middle of June.

LG Electronics (LG), in collaboration with augmented reality (AR) pioneer Wikitude, today announced the adoption of the world’s first three dimensional AR browser on its upcoming LG Optimus 3D smartphone.

The Wikitude 3D browser allows for better interaction and engagement with real-time user environments. While 2D AR only displays overlapped objects, 3D AR shows places, landmarks and objects in 3D making them easier to distinguish. The browser al-lows users to discover details about their surroundings and access related Wikipedia articles and Twitter information.

“AR 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.”

Wikitude 3D includes information on over 100 million locations around the world, with contributions from more than 1,000 content providers. The browser currently provides support for 12 languages with plans to increase this number in the near future. Users can download Wikitude 3D from LG World, LG`s dedicated application store for free, staring in the middle of June.

“The synergy here is simply perfect and the resulting partnership has the potential to take both AR and smartphones to a whole new level,” said Martin Herdina, CEO of Wikitude.

The LG Optimus 3D introduces a number of innovative first technologies, including 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.

The LG Optimus 3D will be available this summer starting in Europe followed by other markets around the world.

Augmented Reality (AR) is a real-time technology which works by overlaying detailed information on user surroundings, including graphics, audio, and more, as captured through smartphone cameras and other devices.
