Celebrating National Stereoscopic Day with 3D•AI

Celebrating National Stereoscopic Day with 3D•AI

If you’ve had a chance to try the Lume Pad 2, you’ve had the opportunity to experience the built-in Stereoscopic 3D Cameras on the front and the back of the tablet. In recognition of National Stereoscopic Day, we’re sharing our connection to the technology and some best practices for using the cameras, for current or future Lume Pad 2 users!

Stereoscopic photography, also known as 3D imaging, is a fascinating technology that has been captivating audiences for well over a century. Quick history lesson: stereoscopy dates back to the early 19th century, with the discovery of the principles of stereoscopy by Sir Charles Wheatstone. He realized that the human brain can perceive depth by combining images from both eyes, leading to the invention of the stereoscope, which created the illusion of a three-dimensional image.

Over the years, stereoscopy has evolved, leading to the development of more sophisticated devices such as the anaglyph and polarized systems, which provided an even more immersive experience for users. The technology became increasingly popular in the 20th century, with the use of 3D glasses in movie theaters and the introduction of home stereoscopy.

Today, we have the Lume Pad 2, a device that represents a glimpse into the future of digital interfaces. This incredible device uses AI to enhance the viewing experience and create endless possibilities for content creation. Its core features are impressive and include a 16-megapixel stereoscopic camera on the back with 5k per eye, a 12.4-inch screen with real 3D capability, and front head tracking for increased field of view and smooth parallax.

One of the coolest features of the Lume Pad 2 is its AI-powered depth preview window in the LeiaCam app which guides the user in getting the perfect amount of depth for their 3D photos and videos. The Stereoscopic 3D camera on the front of the tablet also makes applications more accessible and opens up a range of use cases, including the ability to use LeiaChat, the world’s first 3D video chat platform powered by Zoom.

The Lume Pad 2 represents a major advancement in the field of stereoscopy and provides users with an accessible, and incredibly immersive experience that has never been available on other devices. This innovative tablet will undoubtedly revolutionize the way we consume and create digital content, providing users with endless possibilities for creativity and entertainment.

If you're interested in experiencing this incredible technology for yourself, you can buy the Lume Pad 2 now! Have a Lume Pad 2, here’s a few tips to get the most out of your cameras:
