Nokia and Intel to Research 3D Technology For Mobile Devices

University of OuluA Joint Innovation Center of Intel and Nokia that will become the latest member of the European Research Network of Intel, Intel Labs Europe, was officially opened today by the Intel Corporation, Nokia and the University of Oulu.

Aligned with the recently launched by Intel and Nokia Open Source Platform entitled MeeGo, the Joint Laboratory will focus on developing more intuitive and natural mobile user experiences, similar to the elements used in modern games, like realistic three dimensional graphics. The MeeGo open source platform can provide great flexibility for developing three dimensional experiences on mobile devices.

“The University of Oulu’s focus on future telecommunications solutions as well as electronics and photonics made it the perfect location for the Intel and Nokia Joint Innovation Center,” says Justin Rattner, Intel chief technology officer and director of Intel Labs.

The Joint Laboratory will also have another interesting and potential area of research that will look deep into technologies that might allow the displaying of a three dimensional hologram of the person the user is talking to on the mobile phone. This element is seen only in sci-fi movies today. Consumers will feel more connected and engaged than ever.

“3-D technology could change the way we use our mobile devices and make our experiences with them much more immersive,” said Rich Green, Senior vice president and chief technical officer, Nokia. “Our new joint laboratory with Intel draws on the Oulu research community’s 3-D interface expertise, and over time will lay down some important foundations for future mobile experiences.”

The Joint Laboratory between Intel and Nokia will be located at the Center for Internet Excellence at the University of Oulu.
