Red Camera launches “Star Wars” $1200 holographic display smartphone bills it as the World’s First Holographic Media Machine.
Hollywood camera manufacturer Red recently announced its first foray into the crowded smartphone market with Hydrogen One, an Android device with a 5.7″ display. That screen is the center of attention in the limited information Red has provided, emphasizing its ability to switch from a traditional 2D display to a 3D/VR/AR/holographic display thanks to ‘nanotechnology.
As with RED, modular and marketing go hand in hand so expect the product go through updates as far as specs before the launch date and of course rely on numerous add-ons to achieve some of its loftier goals. Red states that the Hydrogen One will integrate with its family of professional video cameras as a monitor and user interface for Scarlet, Weapon and Epic cameras. It will also offer a proprietary algorithm to convert stereo sound into ‘multi-dimensional audio,’ a microSD card slot and USB-C charging port.
