Video: Fujitsu tech lets any mobile phone shoot 3D pictures or video


Fujitsu has developed a new system that allows standard mobile phone cameras to take 3D pictures.

It demonstrated the system at one of its Tokyo offices. The company has produced a small attachment which fits over a mobile camera lens. The attachment uses a series of small mirrors to split an image or video recording into two parts. It then uploads this data to a server, which combines the two parts into a single 3D picture or video.

Teruyuki Sato, Researcher, Fujitsu Laboratories "The heavy processing is carried out in the cloud. This means that there is no need for dedicated software or chip hardware in the smartphone. This technology allows for capturing 3D images using everyday smartphones or feature phones."

The 3D movies work best with active viewing glasses. 3D photographs can be viewed with standard 3D glasses. The images can also be viewed on special devices, such as this 3D digital photo frame.

Fujitsu is running a promotion on a Japanese web site called Nifty, where it provides the mirrored lens attachment and server access free of charge. The promotion runs through the end of June. For IDG News Service, this is Jay Alabaster in Tokyo.
