Intel and Nokia to work on mobile 3D

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

Intel and Nokia have announced their intention to develop 3D and virtual reality based interfaces for mobile devices in conjunction with Oulu university in Finland.

The work will take place at a joint research lab based at Oulu university, V3.co.uk reports. Over twenty techies will be beavering away attempting to create flash three dimensional interfaces with a focus on Intel and Nokia’s MeeGo platform.

Software will be developed for a range of mobile devices, including tablets and smartphones, with applications in mind such as a virtual world for social networking. This would allow people to meet up and chat in 3D, drawing on location information from their devices.

A virtual system which could be used to control the lighting and heating in your house was also mentioned. We’d certainly like one of those – maybe it could get the radiator in our study to come on.

Don’t expect this sort of technology to be available any time soon, however, as this is more of a long term project looking towards when devices have a little more processing power under their mobile bonnets.

The research has initially secured funding for the next three years.
