Fujitsu’s Attachment Can Turn any Smartphone into a 3D Device
There’s not a whole lot of 3D-enabled smartphones around and that’s because the 3D technology don’t really catch on. Major phone makers like HTC and LG have tried to push its 3D solutions with mediocre success. Apparently the Japan-based Fujitsu still thinks that there are plenty of demands for 3D features on a mobile phone. However, the company is not planning to come up with a fancy 3D handset; instead it will be offering a more flexible solution.
Fujitsu offers a small upgrade pack that can turn any smartphone into a 3D device. The attachment is consisted of mirrors arrangement that directs incoming lights into the sensor. The solution also includes a special app that uploads images to a remote server for a conversion to 3D content. The attachment itself seems to be simple enough to manufacture and Fujitsu claimed that the entire technology only costs 10 percent of current full-blown 3D solutions available in the market today. More details will be revealed on June 4 this year at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania in the International Symposium on Consumer Electronics.
