Learn all about what's possible on the world's first Lightfield tablet.

What is Lume Pad?

Lume Pad is the world’s first Lightfield tablet. A crisp, comfortable 10.8-inch Lightfield display offering a no-compromise experience for the Android apps you know and love as well as a suite of apps that you can see in stereoscopic 3D with the naked eye without ANY specialized eyewear required.

If you’re a creator that wants to see your content in a new light, Lume Pad provides a beautiful medium to highlight your work.

Whether you’re designing buildings, developing games, creating 3D models in new ways, or even if you’re constructing a new take on medical visualization software: the Lume Pad is the tool for you. Pictures, videos, and 3D models. All elevated to the next level with Lightfield.

It all starts here with the Lume Pad and its powerful Leia app suite.

This guide will help you understand everything you can do with your Lume Pad.

Anatomy of the Lume Pad

The Lume Pad is a high-quality Android tablet with a chassis made of brushed aluminum. On the back of the device you'll find the Lume Pad and LitByLeia logos, the high-quality 3D camera, and the antenna window.

On the front of the device you'll find the front-facing camera, the ToF sensor, and of course, the DLB Lightfield display.

On the right side of the device you'll find the volume rocker and the lock button, and on the top of the device you'll find the USB-C charging port.

It all starts with the screen

At Leia, we’ve developed a single optical layer sculpted by nanotechnology that sits just underneath the LCD display to create the Lightfield effect, powered by what we call Diffractive Lightfield Backlighting (DLB).

With 2D content, the Lume Pad’s 10.8-inch screen projects out a bright 2560X1600 picture. When used for traditional Android apps, that 16:10 screen looks bright, sharp and, well, like a normal high-end Android tablet.

But when the DLB is activated, lights pass through it to create a dynamic Lightfield 3D effect. The light projects out four views simultaneously in 16 directions -- this is Lume Pad's Lightfield view mode. Unlike other 3D solutions, Lume Pad is brighter, thinner, can instantly switch between full-quality 2D and Lightfield 3D, and can be rotated to support every orientation while in 3D. Lume Pad is LitByLeia.

Our goal is to deliver our vision of how Lightfield can change the way we see art, engage in commerce, and affect the world.
