In May, Lucid announced that it was working with Hollywood camera maker RED to create a specific piece of camera hardware for RED’s upcoming Hydrogen One phone. With that announcement behind them, Lucid appears ready to take their technology into the broader smartphone market.
The company announced this week that it has plans to scale its core 3D software technology into more mobile and smartphone devices that utilize a dual- or multi-camera setup—a la the larger iPhones, Samsung’s Galaxy phones, and most other smartphones that are released into the wild these days. By doing so, Lucid explained, users will have access to their real-time 3D Fusion technology, which “mimics how the brain processes and learns.” That, in turn, will enable device manufacturers to leverage their camera systems to capture 3D images and greater depth.
“We see this as a unique opportunity where our technology syncs with the acceleration of the industry as dual cameras move into many more devices,” Lucid CEO Han Jin said in a statement.
