3D Augmented Reality comes to an LG mobile phone

South Korean electronics company Lucky Goldstar has announced a collaboration with augmented reality browser company Wikitude, in order to provide 3D AR browsing on their LG Optimus 3D handset.

The LG Optimus 3D is the world’s first 3D mobile phone, where the Wikitude AR is the world’s first AR browser that offers up a whole new dimension to augmented reality on the handset.

Wikitude’s 3D browser allows for better interaction and engagement with a real-time user environment. 2D AR only displays overlapped objects, where 3D AR will shows places, landmarks and objects and all within 3D – which makes them much easier to distinguish.

The browser also allows users to discover details about their surroundings and access related Wikipedia articles, along with Twitter information.

Wikitude 3D includes information on over 100 million locations around the world, with contributions from more than 1,000 content providers.

LG’s Optimus 3D tips up with a dual-core 1Ghz OMAP4 processor, which is backed by dual-channel and dual-memory architecture that enhances the overall performance of the mobile.

The 3D mobile has a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen, which displays all of the 3D material and sans 3D glasses where the LG 3D screens still needs those visual accessories.

The dual lens 5 megapixel camera captures and records those 3D images up to 720P on video, although 1080p filming is possible in just 2D.

Users can download Wikitude 3D from LG World for free, in June this year.
