Ever wanted to be able to send moving, 3D photos to your friends but have an older smartphone? Well, later this year you’ll be in luck, as LucidPix uses AI cleverness to render 3D photos that you can tilt, without needing multiple cameras or any accessories.

You can also convert existing images to trippy, moving ones; perfect for those humblebrag Instagram food pics.

Ever wanted to send trippy photos to your friends? Grab LucidPix when it’s out and you can

LucidPix claims to use AI to make all your images 3D, with the ability to pan or tilt around the picture. Traditionally, this has needed extra hardware or complicated software, but now all you’ll need is your existing smartphone, no matter what camera configuration it has. That’s pretty neat.

  • LucidPix creates 3D images that can be shared to places like Facebook that support the format
  • There’s no additional hardware needed, no time-of-flight sensors, no depth maps, nothing but the app and your existing smartphone camera
  • The free version will watermark all your snaps, or you can pay $60 yearly ($6 monthly) for the unlocked version

You can sign up for early access on LucidPix’s website, and yes, there are both iOS and Android versions.
