LG has announced the collaboration with Wikitude to offer the world's first 3-D augmented reality browser on its highly anticipated Optimus 3D smartphone. The browser lets users discover details about their surroundings and access related information.
Today, LG has announced its collaboration with Wikitude on the adoption of the world’s first three dimensional Augmented Reality (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 allows 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 with plans to increase the number in the near future. Users can download Wikitude 3D from LG World, LG`s application store for free, starting mid-June.
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 Android smartphone will be available this summer starting in Europe followed by other markets around the world.
