I took the new LumePad to breakfast with me yesterday with a showreel and showed it around the regulars, and the expression on everyones faces was priceless. That screen. Even people who had previously seen the Hydrogen One were impressed - this new screen really shines. Can’t wait to develop new apps to take advantage of this, and see what everyone else creates too.
I liked the Hydrogen One, which is kind of the grandparent of the Lume pad -- the pad, though, is a quantum leap forward in terms of clarity, brightness, and the ability to play with / manipulate images. It's a whole lot cooler than your average iPad or Surface device.
3D is not a gadget anymore. The screen just switches from 2D to 3D seamlessly and the effect is incredible. Images literally pop out of the screen like you would get from the best 3D movies but WITHOUT using any glasses. The tablet is otherwise very good with a lot of battery time and great speed. Go for it, the wow effect is 100% certain.
Lets start with the fact that I have been a user of the IPAD for 10 years, but moved from the IPHONE to an android phone 2 years ago.
I have been looking for an Android replacement of the IPAD even though i am very happy with the IPAD.
First thing is that the LUME PAD has a great design. It is lighter than it looks (slightly thicker than an Ipad), and the screen is fantastic. I installed my apps and synchronized very easily. First impression, the image is very crisp, much better than my Ipad. It responds fast when i click. Use is very enjoyable.
Second thing with the LUME PAD is the holographic display. The 4D picture of a heart truly demonstrates how unique the technology is. It is breathtaking to be able to observe and manipulate the image of a beating heart so easily. One can imagine to use this in biology class. And the applications are infinite in school: what a fantastic way to engage students with LIGHTFIELD representation of the Revolutionary War, Plate Tectonics, or the Himalaya. I was able to quickly make great Lightfield photos, it opens up to so many photo/video possibilities.
In a nutshell, its an awesome product, new technology with a very complete and great product, bravo LEIA!
A++ product and I hope future improvement are in the making.
