LG Optimus 3D smartphone

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, says a press release by the company.
The Wikitude 3D browser allows for better interaction 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. 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.
