United States reservations are now open for Leia Lume Pad 2, what the company claims is the world’s first 3D AI tablet equipped with embedded technology to create fully immersive 3D calling, streaming, and gaming experiences along with content sharing and creation apps – all without the need for any eyewear.
The Lume Pad 2 is available for reservation at a suggested retail price of $1,099. Customers who reserve before March 31 will receive a $100 discount when they confirm their order in April, when tablets begin shipping.
“With Leia’s unique 3D AI experiences, now available worldwide, people no longer have to settle for unnatural interactions like video chat on a flat screen,” said Cecilia Qvist, CEO, Leia Inc. “Lume Pad 2 is for anyone who has ever sought a more genuine human connection from their online experiences.”
“We know that 3D isn’t new – but how we do it is,” said David Fattal, Leia Inc. co-founder and CTO. “With the world focused on how AI will continue to shape our future, we feel that this is one of its most thrilling applications – giving the naked eye a fully immersive 3D viewing experience that we believe makes Lume Pad 2 a 3D device for everyone.”
Expected to be among the most popular features are LeiaChat and LeiaDream.
LeiaChat offers heightened emotional connection, in true-to-life 3D chat (as opposed to other apps that use avatars), enabling a present, and refined video experience that captures unparalleled depth and nuance.
“Zoom’s platform is arguably the global leader in video conferencing and their user-centric approach to innovation is a natural fit for our aspirations at Leia, as we aim to make our immersive, real-life 3D experience accessible to everyone around the world,” said Qvist.
“Leia is poised to bring immersive 3D to mobile users worldwide,” said Brendan Ittelson, CTO of Zoom. “The opportunity to chat in 3D – especially from a portable handheld device – will no doubt enhance the way we connect with others on a daily basis. Zoom has optimized our Video SDK to best relay stereoscopic video streams and help enable LeiaChat to offer one of the highest quality 3D video call experiences.”
Leia has also partnered with Stability.AI to leverage its stable diffusion technology to create LeiaDream, the first built-in generative art app enabling users to get creative and generate AI art with text in 3D.
“We’ve only just begun to understand how AI will transform the way we communicate, collaborate and create,” said Emad Mostaque, CEO of Stability.AI. “Leia continues to push boundaries with 3D, as they literally open our eyes to a new dimension of digital engagement, bringing art to life and engaging creatives with groundbreaking tools.”
