Intel Corporation and Nokia together with the University of Oulu have opened a Joint Innovation Center today, which will conduct research into new mobile user experiences such having a 3D hologram of the person you are talking to displayed on your phone.

It's expected to employ about 24 R&D professionals and is the latest member of Intel's European Research Network, Intel Labs Europe.

Intel says the lab will initially "conduct research for new and compelling mobile user experiences that could leverage the rapidly increasing capabilities of mobile devices" - creating mobile interfaces that are closer to real world interactions, having 3D holograms of the person who's calling on a phone's display, and other 3D experiences on mobile devices.

The new lab will be in line the MeeGo open source platform and much of the research activity will be open source.

"3-D technology could change the way we use our mobile devices and make our experiences with them much more immersive," said Rich Green, senior VP and chief technical officer at Nokia. "Our new joint laboratory with Intel draws on the Oulu research community's 3-D interface expertise, and over time will lay down some important foundations for future mobile experiences."

The Intel and Nokia Joint Innovation Center will be located at the Center for Internet Excellence at the University of Oulu.
