We have heard a number of specifications on the new LG Optimus 3D, which is due to go on sale some time in the summer, and now LG just dropped us an email to let us know about a new feature on the Optimus 3D.
LG has teamed up with Wikitude, and the Optimus 3D will ship with the first 3D augmented reality browser, which is called the Wikitude 3D browser, and it is designed to display 3D AR places, landmarks and objects in 3D, and it will allow you to access details about your surroundings and also access information from websites like Twitter and Wikipedia.
“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 Communications Company. “LG’s cutting-edge hardware and 3D API software technology now pushes this reality a step further.”
The Wikitude 3D AR Browser will have information for over 100 million locations around the world, and will feature information from more than 1,000 different content providers.
As soon as we get some information on exactly when the Optimus 3D will be available, and how much it will retail for we will let you guys know.
