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.

EU announces legal entity to keep up business with Iran

first_imgMinisters and officials including Iran’s foreign minister Javad Zarif arrive for a family picture after the last plenary session at the United Nations building in Vienna. Photo: ReutersThe European Union said Monday its members would set up a payment system to allow oil companies and businesses to continue trading with Iran in a bid to evade sanctions after the US withdrew from a nuclear agreement.Iran and the European Union announced their defiance towards US president Donald Trump’s administration after high-level talks at the United Nations among the remaining members of the accord.The countries said in a statement that they were determined “to protect the freedom of their economic operators to pursue legitimate business with Iran.”With the United States and the dollar dominating so much of global trade, the statement said the new mechanism would “facilitate payments related to Iran’s exports (including oil) and imports, which will assist and reassure economic operators pursuing legitimate business with Iran.”EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, speaking at the United Nations alongside Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, said the countries were still working out the technical details.”In practical terms, this will mean that EU member states will set up a legal entity to facilitate legitimate financial transactions with Iran and this will allow European companies to continue to trade with Iran in accordance with European Union law and could be open to other partners in the world,” she told reporters.She said that the remaining members of the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action — Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia — would also maintain their commitments to support Iran on civilian nuclear energy.”The participants recalled that these initiatives are aimed at preserving the JCPOA, which is in the international interest,” she said.Pressure on Iranian economyIn line with findings of UN inspectors, Mogherini reiterated that Iran has been in compliance with the nuclear agreement — under which Tehran drastically scaled back its nuclear program in exchange for relief from sanctions.The agreement was sealed in 2015 in a signature achievement for then US president Barack Obama.Trump pulled out of the agreement in May, describing it as a “disaster” and quickly moving to reimpose sanctions on Iran.Despite the protests of the European Union, a number of business including French energy giant Total and carmakers Peugeot and Renault as well as Germany’s Siemens and Daimler have already suspended operations in Iran for fear of triggering US sanctions.With Iran’s economy already feeling the pinch, US national security adviser John Bolton earlier Monday vowed to impose “maximum pressure” on Tehran, while insisting that Washington was not pushing for regime change.US Arab allies Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates as well as Israel have long sought for Washington to work to curtail non-Arab and predominantly Shiite Muslim Iran’s influence in the Middle East, including in war-torn Syria.The EU move comes a day before Trump and Iranian president Hassan Rouhani separately address the UN General Assembly, with the US leader expected to take a hard line on Iran.last_img read more

Allen West Says Hes Exploring A Run For Texas GOP Chair

first_imgBy Defender News ServiceAllen West, the former Florida congressman who now lives in Texas, announced Wednesday evening that he is exploring a run for Texas GOP chair, setting up a potential challenge to the party’s current leader, James Dickey.“As I look ahead as to how I can continue my service to this constitutional republic and the great state of Texas, my family and I … have decided to explore the opportunity to be the next chairman of the Republican Party of Texas,” West said in a live YouTube broadcast.DEFENDER NEWS NETWORK — Allen West, the former Florida congressman who now lives in Texas, announced Wednesday evening that he is exploring a run for Texas GOP chair, setting up a potential challenge to the party’s current leader, James Dickey.Delegates will elect the next chair of the Republican Party of Texas at its 2020 convention, which is scheduled for May 14-16 in Houston. Dickey first won the job in 2017 after the previous chair resigned, and he was reelected a year later — both were contentious races.After West’s announcement, Dickey issued a statement making clear he is running for re-election next year — and warning against intra-party conflict during a critical cycle for Texas Republicans.“We are on an incredible path and we must not waver,” Dickey said. “Division in Texas amongst our base is not what we need to defeat what will be next year the greatest Democrat onslaught that we have seen in decades.”West’s announcement was closely watched in the Texas political world. He had said in advance that he would announce whether he was running for one of three offices: the 32nd Congressional District, U.S. Senate or state party chair.He acknowledged that he may be letting down some supporters by not seeking a return to Capitol Hill. “But if the soul of Texas is lost, then what gain do I have in that personal accomplishment or achievement?” West asked.His potential candidacy for the 32nd District drew particular attention. The incumbent — freshman U.S. Rep. Colin Allred, D-Dallas — flipped the seat last year, and Democrats were salivating at the prospect of facing a conservative firebrand like West in a battleground district.West’s re-emergence on the political stage still gives fodder to Texas Democrats, and the state party reacted to his potential chairmanship bid by highlighting the GOP’s array of down-ballot losses last year.“With that record of mounting failure, it’s no surprise that right-wing conspiracy theorist and ousted Florida Congressman Allen West would see these results and decide to run for Texas’ Trump Republican Party Chair,” the Texas Democratic Party’s executive director, Manny Garcia, said in a statement.West represented Florida’s 22nd District from 2011-13. After redistricting, West chose to run in a different district in 2012 and lost to Democrat Patrick Murphy in a pricy, high-profile battle.West moved to North Texas in 2014 after being named CEO of the Dallas-based National Center for Policy Analysis. The next year, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick appointed West to a spot on the state’s Sunset Commission, which periodically reviews the operation and efficiency of state agencies.West has remained active in conservative circles, regularly appearing as a pundit on Fox News and joining the Texas Public Policy Foundation last year to lead a new initiative there. TPPF announced Monday that West had left the job.This article originally appeared in the Defender News Network.last_img read more
