Fujitsu technology gives any smartphone 3D powers

Fujitsu technology gives any smartphone 3D powers
3D-enabled smartphones – there isn't a whole lot of them around, is there? That is because the 3D gimmick didn't really catch on, even though companies like LG and HTC tried to push its adoption with smartphones of their own. Yet apparently, Fujitsu still believes that there is enough demand for 3D features on a smartphone. However, instead of coming up with a new, fancy, 3D smartphone, the company has taken a different approach.

Fujitsu has developed a small attachment that allows any smartphone to capture 3D content. Composed out of four flat mirrors, the accessory directs light towards the single image sensor, after which comes the tricky part: specially made software by Fujitsu uploads the captured image or footage to a remote server where distortion caused by the said mirrors is being corrected. And voila! You have just created 3D content with your non-3D smartphone.

The attachment itself measures 57 x 14 x 14 millimeters and is supposedly pretty cheap to manufacture. According to Fujitsu, the technology costs 90% less when compared to alternatives currently on the market. Want to learn more about the gizmo? Then check out the image to the right where its way of operation is described in detail. For even more information about the new technology, stay tuned to news from the International Symposium on Consumer Electronics, which will be held on June 4 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

sony has that feature (3d panorama shot) in their 2011 xperia phones even, 2012 Xperias are much better than 2011 as they have even a multi shot or so called feature. if u capture a shot of a moving object under that feature then u can see the motion of that object on ur screen just by tilting ur screen(i.e. increase the angle of tilt on and on). now thats cool

For d last time my ifans, can we stop saying how samsung is copying Apple, SIRI is on ios, S-VOICEfor Samsung, why didnt we compalin about apple using android idea of having voice assistant? But now that Samsung is doing something for Samfans we go al out to say they r copying apple, atleast samsung its here to innovate unlike my beloved apple that put three features and call it a magical device. I luv my iphone and someone else out there luv their galaxy devices, we all have different needs. We keep defending companies that makes millions if not billions a year, yet they dont even share that paper with us, but we go all out to call other companies names! Stick with you galaxy s2(fone of d year by d way) and i will stick with my iphone. Case closed. Can we all start coming up with some new. Samsung copied Apple is now boring and out of trand!

can you pretty please stop already, we heard you! If these comapnies dont copy each other, thechnology will be stagnant. Just emagine if the first cellphone maker decided to sue every company making a cellphone or a smartphone, do u think we will have an iphone. This copying benefits us the consumer, let the campanies copying each other worry about that! Every company does copy another. You make the rest of use Apple fans look stupid. Dont you have a life?

Why is it that when samsung wants to attain any technology its called "copying"? And when apple wants to attain technology its called "acquire"? Be a bit more realistic. Apple is much more on a very sadistic approach. Foxconn is on a workforce meltdown due to worker incontent. Guess their rep is much more to claim guilty then an arrow strike on an innovative co. Apple is innovative too. Both have their pro's n con's. But your approach is just too bland!! No hard feelings. But being realistic.
