Objective:

The 3DPHONE project aims to develop technologies and core applications enabling a new level of mobile 3D experience, by developing an all-3D imaging mobile phone. The aim of the project is to realise all fundamental functions of the phone i.e. media display, user interface (UI), and personal information management (PIM) applications in 3D but usable without any stereo glasses.

Users will be able to:
  • Capture memories in 3D and communicate with others in 3D virtual spaces
  • Interact with their device and applications in 3D
  • Manage their personal media content in 3D

The expected outcome will be simpler use and a more personalized look and feel.
The project will advance the state-of-the-art in mobile 3D technologies by:
- Implementing a mobile hardware and software platform with both 3D image capture and 3D display capability, featuring both 3D displays and multiple cameras. The project will evaluate different 3D display and capture solutions and will implement the most suitable solution for hardware-software integration.
- Developing user interfaces and applications that will capitalize on the 3D auto-stereoscopic illusion in the mobile handheld environment. The project will design and implement 3D and Zoomable UI metaphors suitable for autostereoscopic displays.
- Investigating and implementing end-to-end 3D video algorithms and 3D data representation formats, targeted for 3D recording, 3D playback and real-time 3D video communication.
- Performing ergonomics and experience testing to measure any possible negative symptoms, such as eyestrain, created by stereoscopic content. The project will research ergonomic conditions specific to the mobile handheld usage, in particular, the small screen, one hand holding the device, absence of complete keyboard and limited input modalities.

 Projects General
  
 
The company won important national and EU grants that allowed to accelerate the R&D work to create the next generation high-resolution monitor type display and a wall-size 3D projector system. Holografika`s research team has actively been involved in the continuous development of the theory and practice of real-time holographic displays. Along with the technologies used in the successive 3D display generations the company has started to develop related 3D technologies, like 3D acquisition, 3D compression and possible 3D formats.
