LG has teamed up with Wikitude, a pioneer in augmented reality (AR), to implement the world’s first 3D augmented reality browser in its LG Optimus 3D smartphone. the Wikitude 3D browser enables a better interaction and engagement with real-time user environments. unlike its 2D counterpart, 3D AR shows places, landmarks and objects in 3D making them easily recognizable to the users. additionally, the browser allows users to learn more about their surrounding through access to related articles on Wikipedia and Twitter information.
the Wikitude 3D will includes information as provided by more than 1,000 content providers that covers more than 100 millions locations worldwide. the browser has support for 12 languages with more languages to be added in near future. Wikitude 3D is free to downloaded from LG dedicated application store, LG World, mid of next month. incidentally, the 3D AR is not the only ‘first’ on the LG Optimus 3D. the handset also sports the world’s first dual-core, dual-channel, dual-memory architecture, as well as the first glasses-free full 3D platform for viewing, recording and sharing.
