Fujitsu Laboratories Ltd. has developed technology for an attachable device that allows users to shoot 3-D images with cameras found in ordinary cellphones and smartphones.
The company said users can take 3-D videos and photos like those done by a 3-D camera with two lenses by attaching a finger-sized device equipped with four small mirrors to the camera of their handheld devices.
With the new equipment, two images from slightly different angles are taken. After the images are sent to a dedicated website, they are converted to a format that allows viewing on 3-D TVs and 3-D-capable computers.
The Fujitsu research institute started the service on a trial basis on April 26. It said it will distribute the device for free to the first 1,000 people who apply for it and does not have a plan to sell the device. However, a public relations official said the institute hopes other companies will mass-produce it.
