(Newser) – YouTube is about to introduce a feature that will let users upload 3D videos from their mobile devices, which could give 3D adoption a shot in the arm. The first device to get in on the service will be LG’s Optimus 3D, a smartphone that boasts glasses-free 3D technology and dual cameras that enable users to take 3D photos and videos. Any gadget with stereoscopic 3D capabilities (like a computer with a 120Hz display) should be able to show the videos, which will live in a 3D channel on the site. This could be a “minor milestone,” Electronista notes, expanding 3D video’s platform beyond the confines of specific formats and apps.
