Angela Lang/CNET In a corner conference room, Han Jin, the CEO of Lucid, places an old iPhone 7 Plus on the table. He swipes through pages of apps, showing me what looks on all counts to be a normal iPhone with a screen protector on it. Then, he opens the Lucid app and plays a clip from Avatar in 3D. I look at him astonished, realizing he just made the iPhone 3D.This isn’t some magic trick, but rather a screen protector that can make the iPhone’s display, or pretty much any phone for that matter, show 3D. It works by using a special lenticular screen protector called the Holoscreen along with Lucid’s app. See It $999 Best Buy • 28 Photos See All Jun 1 • The Nubia Alpha looks like either a house arrest bracelet or Batman’s phone Mobile World Congress 2019 Boost Mobile Mobile Accessories Phonescenter_img $999 Originally published Feb. 26, 12:01 a.m. PT.Updated, 10.30 a.m. PT. $999 May 13 • Galaxy S10E vs. iPhone XR: Every spec compared 4 reading • Turn iPhone, Pixel or Galaxy phone displays into 3D with this screen protector See it Comments MWC 2019: All the phones and gadgets we cared about Holoscreen is a screen protector that makes any phone… The screen looks normal when not using Lucid’s app. Email and texts are sharp and crisp. But with the app, I can view photos and videos in 3D, and the effect looks very smooth. I didn’t see the banding or ghosting that you see from some 3D screens such as those on the Nintendo 3DS.I can even take my own 3D photos and videos and share them using the app, too. The one caveat here is you need a phone with two rear cameras like the iPhone 7 Plus to do so.The two companies behind the Holoscreen are Holitech and Lucid. Holitech makes and supplies displays for midrange phones and Lucid makes AI-based 3D and depth capture software for phones. Notably Lucid partnered with Red on the 3D camera functionality on its Hydrogen One phone.lucid-3d-screen-protector-2The Holoscreen looks like a regular old screen protector and works as one. But when used with Lucid’s app, it turns your phone display into 3D. Angela Lang/CNET What’s remarkable is that really the only other phone with anything like this 3D-wise is the Red Hydrogen One, which sells for $1,295. One of the criticisms I had about the Red Hydrogen One was that you could only share 3D videos and photos with people who had their own Hydrogen One.The Holoscreen’s price is much less and will be around $30 to $40 — not much more than a normal screen protector. This affordable price should allow many people to try 3D out on a phone for the first time. The Holoscreen aims to be to 3D content what Google Cardboard is to VR.I don’t think the Holoscreen will transform anyone’s deep-seated beliefs or hatred for 3D. But for many people who are curious about 3D, this seems to be an affordable way to test the waters. And if you don’t like the 3D effect or stop watching content over time, the Holoscreen still works as a screen protector.The Holoscreen protector will go on sale this summer.

Mobiles in exam halls may put HS examinees in trouble

first_imgKolkata: Ahead of higher secondary examination, the West Bengal Board on Saturday warned the students of stern punitive action if they are found carrying smartphones during the examination.The West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education president Mahua Das, while addressing a media conference, said that stringent action, including cancellation of registration, would be taken against students if any cell phone is found in their possession in the examination hall. The new move has been initiated after question papers of the Madhyamik exam were leaked, most of all the seven papers. The HS examination will begin on February 26 and continue until March 13. Around 8,16,243 candidates will take the examination. Interestingly, the number of female candidates taking the examination is higher than their male counterparts by 63,413. The class XI examination on the basis of the new syllabus will also be conducted simultaneously during the same period. Das added that there will be computer-generated numbers on each packet containing the question papers which will help the Council to track them. In addition to that, there will be a more effective manual tracking system in place. There will be around 713 HS examination centres across the state while the number of venue stands at 2,117. According to the press statement issued by the president, there will be a deployment of two Council nominees at each main venue. Apart from the venue supervisor, centre-in-charge and centre secretary, none will be allowed to enter the venue with mobile phones. The security arrangement has also been enhanced. The process of capturing video inside all the venues which was started from last year will also be done this year. A District Magistrate-nominated representative will be the venue-in-charge and supervise the examination procedure. For the first time, the WBCHSE has decided to deploy special Council nominee at 250 sensitive venues.last_img read more
