The South Korean technology giant has recently unveiled one of its great features for the Optimus smartphone; a 3D browser in association with Wikitude’s augmented reality (AR) technology. LG has tied up with the AR pioneer, Wikitude to develop this amazing Web browser for its proposed 3D smartphone. According to LG, the Wikitude 3D browser will help users watch objects, places and landmarks in 3D on their smartphone.

In fact, along with 3D viewing of their locations and surroundings, users can easily access to Wikipedia and Twitter updates on them in the browser. It definitely provides an extra strength for LG’s innovative 3D browser.

LG press release on the AR-based 3D browser for Optimus 3D says that the technology has been praised for its potential to replace the ‘abstract’ realities of standard mobile browsers with ‘actual’ reality streamed through the camera of the smartphone.
