By working with LG, YouTube is actively pushing mobile 3D content into the public mindset. According to the press release, Francsico Varela, Head of YouTube Platform Partnerships claimed: “3D technology has traditionally been reserved for the major Hollywood movie studios. With the new LG Optimus 3D anyone anywhere in the world can shoot 3D videos, upload them to YouTube and share them with their friends. We’re excited to see the creative videos our community captures and shares with this new technology.”
While there’s still a long way to go for 3D technology – let alone mobile 3D – this partnership is a good first step for taking the idea to the people. Hopefully 2D phones will still be able to view 3D videos though, otherwise there’s still not much point.
