I recently got the chance to play with something futuristic. Haha. It’s the Cinemizer eyewear produced by Zeiss.

It was at the Nokia Developer Summit where I got exposed to this device that allows users to have 3D experience with stereo sound watching movies(and playing games) on mobile phones.

According to Zeiss website; “Whether you want to watch a whodunit inside the sanctity of your own four walls, or a thriller while riding an exercise bike at the gym – cinemizerplus allows you to enjoy a blockbuster wherever you are”

To get it to work on the mobile phone, we need to have the software installed and the dock that plugs into the 3.5mm headphone jack that has a cable connecting to the eyewear.

The Cinemizer eyewear made me look like Cyclopse…. but the 3d experience was mind blowing… with earphone plugged deep into your ear… one get get immersed into the movie right away.

Here’s a video demonstration of the eyewear plugged onto an N86 that I recorded at the event in Monaco.

Ever wished you can have an app on your mobile phone that gives you access to Facebook, Twitter, Google iCal, RSS reader, movie reviews, dictionary and many more for FREE?

Now you can! Haha… I was introduced to Snaptu yesterday and realized that they actually have a mobile app(for all sorts of phones) that gives you exactly the integration mentioned above!

I have tested in on both my N96 and 5800XPM and they both work perfectly!

Let’s have a look at Snaptu on the N96. Upon entering into Snaptu menu, you have to allow it to access the Internet to retrieve all the services. (better subscribe to an unlimited data plan for this!)

Once connected, some default widgets will be displayed and you can remove them and also add new ones from the catalog as you like.

Logging into facebook gives you access to all the status updates and your message inbox. Clicking on a status update brings you to the profile page of the friend you selected. From there you can view their photos, profile and etc. Check out the video below to know more.

Snaptu loads very well on the 5800 too! After installing, make sure you go to Settings > applications > installed apps > Snaptu > options > Suite settings and select onscreen keyboard OFF. This will allow the app to be displayed in fullscreen mode.

In these screenshots you can see the RSS widget, Twitter and also the Movie widget called MyMovies.

Watch the video below to see the smooth menu animations and also to witness how well Snaptu gives you access to Internet services.

Visit Snaptu now and download the FREE application for you mobile!
