Sony Ericsson introduce 3D to 2D phone cameras!

6 September 2011

This is the kind of interesting thing people will shoot on their 3D cameras

Sony Ericsson’s Xperia Arc S phone is about to toss a faddy thing everyone's way which will be exciting for roughly one week, before sloping off toward the Beta Max skip.

Basically, the phone will be able to take 3D panoramic pictures using a standard 2D camera, which is pretty nifty.

Essentially, what happens is, that the phone takes multiple images and then stitches them together, simulating 3D on any appropriately equipped 3D television.

Of course, on the phone itself, your pictures will be 2D only.

The Android phone will be released from October in the UK and Sony Ericsson are claiming that it runs 25 per cent faster than its predecessors thanks to a faster 1.4GHz processor.

The Arc S includes a 4.2” screen and the camera definition is 8.1MP. There's a photo of it here, should you be interested.

So expect a load of idiots taking 3D pictures of their awful children and showing them to you on their 3D television. It's the return of the holiday slideshows.

    Yeah, but it's still a Sony Ericsson.

    I do wonder why we don't have a 3d phone yet, we have the 3ds.

    How odd that I had not heard of this, I am normally up on the latest tech. Thanks Robert!
