LG has worked with augmented reality pioneer Wikitude, and their collaboration has resulted in the first three dimensional AR browser in the world that will debut on the upcoming LG Optimus 3D smartphone. Just what does the Wikitude 3D browser deliver to the table? For starters, it will enable better interaction and engagement with real-time user environments, and with 2D AR displaying just overlapped objects and nothing else, 3D AR will be able to show off places, landmarks and objects in 3D glory to make them a whole lot easier to distinguish. The browser also allows users to discover details concerning their surroundings and access related Wikipedia articles and Twitter information.
Wikitude 3D will throw in information on more than 100 million locations worldwide, where it will take advantage of contributions from over 1,000 content providers. The browser is capable of supporting up to a dozen languages at the moment, with plans to increase this number down the road. Users are able to download Wikitude 3D from LG World, which is LG`s dedicated application store, where you need not fork out a single cent for it from the middle of June onwards.
The LG Optimus 3D will be out later this summer, hitting the Eurozone first followed by the rest of the world. At least that gives you one more month to save up for it, right?
