Following more powerful processing capabilities through lower power source consumption, with flexible screens and more advanced components, smartphones are to bring into our daily life much more, when among what promised to us we can count: 3D Screens and Holograms and Augmented Reality.
3D Screens & Holograms
Apple’s ‘Retina Display has taught us on some high level of screen resolution, above human eye’s caption level. As usual, once we get used to something good, we seek for more. Manufacturers are running into 3D smartphones’ screens, example of LG Optimus 3D, and the “curious” old models: Motorola MT810 and Samsung Amoled 3D. Once we reach the featured 3D screens, it will just remain to move into a Hologram-featured world, where a User will be interacting as well with the phone, grabbing items and menus, handling their size and angle, playing a 3D game with others online and much more. There is an Holographic display to be released next year, to be based on technologies intended to provide richer 3D look to objects in its display, by some Silicon Valley’ startups.
“Augmented Reality” or “AR” it is generally related to technology addressing to what we perceive through our senses enhanced through the use of a computer-generated sensory input like sound, video, graphics and location data. AR provides more information by the combining processed data to what we identified around us in real life. In example, with your smartphone camera, pointing it to over the street you are walking through, can provide you overlay information actually “hidden” to your eye, upon pre-defined preferences or in general.
