NTT Docomo develops head mounted Smartphone for hands free calling

Video calling is one of the important features of modern mobile technology, but holding your Smartphone in front of your face for a longer period is both tedious and annoying. To add ease and style to your communication, NTT Docomo has come up with a head-mounted Smartphone called “Hands-free Video Phone” that allows hands free video calling.

Developed as a part of Docomo’s research on creating future glasses-type devices, the new video phone integrates three cameras, each with 720p resolution and a fish-eye lens with a 180-degree field of view, on the frame to create a video by fusing all the High Definition pictures with a pre-rendered 3D model of the face of the user and sent it to the person on the other end.

The hands free device also features a camera at the rear to capture the real background and achieve more realistic video calls. Now with the Hands-free Video Phone you can make a video call without holding your Smartphone in front of your face.
