3D..  I don’t get the big deal with it..



Joy Aether launched the official version of “D33P for Android”(pronounced “deep”) into the Android Market today. D33P transforms 2D photos into 3D, and displays them as 3D on 3D Android phones. D33P unleashes the power of 3D on Android 3D phones by allowing the users view old photos in 3D, even though they were taken as 2D photos.

3D Android phones have gained popularity, and many of them now come with a stereoscopic 3D camera and a 3D display. But the emergence of these 3D devices has also posed a problem to their users: they have only a few photos taken with a 3D camera, and the vast majority of their photos are still in 2D.

D33P users can choose old photos from Facebook, or from the Android device’s albums. By sourcing from a user’s own Facebook photos, a D33P user is no longer limited to only his small collection of photos taken by a 3D camera. Using D33P, a user can transform those Facebook photos into 3D. This means a user could expand the number of 3D photos drastically, even for photos that she had taken 5 years ago.

Enriching contents via technology

Through advanced image analysis based on optics and physics principles, D33P analyzes the composition of regular photos, and convert them into 3D photos. “3D technologies has become mainstream in the past two years, and we see the proliferation of 3D capabilities in mobile devices too”, said Leo Lau, Joy Aether Founder and CEO. “However, true value of 3D experience by customers depends on the amount of 3D contents that are available. Over 99% of consumers’ digital photo collections are still in traditional 2D formats. With the D33P app, based on our ‘D33P engine’, we unlock that 99% of content, transform them into 3D, and create the 3D experience on 3D mobile devices.”

D33P’s current version is especially designed for the HTC EVO 3D. More devices support, and support for 2D devices with simulated 3D effects will be coming soon.
