Indian researchers create technology for taking 3D pictures on smartphones
| by Shunal Doke |
Indian researchers have managed to create a new smartphone technology that allows you to take 3D pictures on your phone. The researchers – Kshitij Marwah and Ramesh Raskar from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology – have created technology that can provide developers a way to integrate features usually found in DSLR (digital single-lens reflex) cameras into smartphones.
Imagine taking 3D Pictures on your smartphone
The practical uses of having the capability of taking 3D pictures using nothing more than a smartphone are many. Instead of boring pictures, you'll be able to see people showing off entire "scenes". Also, the DSLR features that could be used on smartphones will give users many ways to edit their pictures and give them a more professional look. Also useful will be the ability to change the point of focus of the picture after having taken the picture.
Recently, Samsung had managed to do the opposite of this by revealing a camera that is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is generally an operating system used by smartphones and tablets. The Galaxy Camera was announced at IFA 2012. Samsung claims that the Galaxy Camera combines high performance photography with the latest Android v4.1 (Jelly Bean) operating system and wireless network connectivity, thereby creating a new type of device.

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
