Usually when we see the term "3D", failed products come to mind, such as televisions and 3D phones. Part of the problem is that 3D is often seen as the beginning of a new product category, rather than being approached as new tool expression.
Η Lucid, the company behind the application LucidPix, cleverly approached the role of 3D as a creative tool. Whether you have a state-of-the-art device like the iPhone 11 or Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, or older like the Motorola Moto G6 or iPhone 6S, you can use the LucidPix app to take 3D photos. Best of all, you do not need a special accessory or many rear cameras.
In place of these tools, LucidPix uses technology AI for rendering XNUMXD photos, which move as you shake and move your phone.
Earlier this year at CES, Lucid has shown that the magical visualization of its application does not require specialized hardware, such as the $ 1.300 Red Hydrogen One of 2019. LucidPix captures 3D images with software that mimics how the human brain is processed in depth.
The software started with the company's LucidCam VR180 camera and used by Red on the Hydrogen phone and the unreleased Red 8K 3D Lithium movie camera. During the beta release, the app scrutinized the features and interface, with over a million people testing it.
LucidPix can also convert them your existing 2D photos in 3D. The final images can be shared in the application community or on other platforms such as Facebook, which has built-in support for displaying 3D images. Adding this social aspect to the app lets you share and view XNUMXD images, as do people with XNUMXD images in Instagram. or Snapchat.
«The way consumers express themselves digitally and visually has evolved more and more into what we naturally see with our own eyes. So in recent years, the visual medium has become more multidimensional, leading to more portrait photography, 3D content and AR and VR creation., "He said Han Jin, Founder and CEO of Lucid.
Jin says the technology that powers the LucidPix app will one day affect future photo formats from AR and VR to 3D and holograms, either on a phone or with a specialized headset.
