MWC: A mobile platform with HD, 3D, and mobile
 
 

Today Texas Instruments showcased its OMAP 4 platform, a very forward-thinking mobile platform that brings everything from 3D renderings to motionless gesture recognition. TI collectively calls the applications in OMAP "Human Device Interactions" (HDI).

"TI envisions a near-term mobile future that will be vastly different than today's mobile environment. Similar to how the touchscreen changed the way we interact with our devices, touchless gesturing and 3D-HD mobile capabilities will take experiences to the next level and radically change how we connect to our devices and the things around us. TI is excited to play a key role with our customers in this revolution," said TI VP and manager of the OMAP platform, Remi El-Ouazzane.

Here is a rundown of the features that TI is working on with this highly ambitious platform:

Touchless gesturing: Using a 2D camera, users will be able to use their hands and body movement to trigger certain phone functions.

Multiple display support: Instead of just one screen or display, content and information can be spread out across multiple UIs.

Interactive projection: Snap a picture with a built-in camera and immediately manipulate it

Stereoscopic 3D imaging: By mapping two cameras together, a mobile phone could actually perceive depth from a captured scene or picture. And it would even capture it in high definition.

Object recognition: Face recognition from camera images, as well as logo and object recognition for more sophisticated image manipulation.

Does it all sound like a pipe dream? Well, TI expects this technology to be deployed this year. Keep your eyes peeled for more info from this leader in mobile tech.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
