I think I have cracked it :D

It is bluetooth

See me from left, I appear as spectacles.

It seems like specs with 2 handle and and 2 glasses as per shape of bluetooth

See me from right, I appear as a butterfly.

From the right it looks like butterfly with 2 moustaches :D

See me from top, I will connect to just one.

It connect to just one Bluetooth device

See me from bottom, I am just a wave.

It about Bluetooth waves

Hint :

This is my lucky number <- 151208

IEEE 802.15.1

Hint 2 : Its related to technology

Obviously It is wireless technology

Hint 3 : Its in your mobile

Its available in mobile

Bluetooth Icon

Another guess, following from the 'science'. tag. Are you a:

Electron orbital group (specifically, 'd')?
enter image description here

See me from left, I appear as spectacles.

You would see two lobes connected

See me from right, I appear as a butterfly.

4 orbs in a butterfly-ish shape

See me from top, I will connect to just one.

Again, only two lobes, giving a single (visible) axis. I'm rusty on the science, but this could refer to a single ligand axis, or the fact that it looks like a lower level orbital from this view?

See me from bottom, I am just a wave.

Not sure how directionality plays in yet, but this could reference the wave/particle duality of electrons?

Update (answer 2)

Still is abstract but at least an object. Related to technology. Additionally, has an item number 151208 ! See the NATO plug socket, the glasses (spectacles) and the butterfly shape on the two sides, from above you see the connection itself, and from below, if there is a connection and the cover is tilted down, you only see the wavy margin of the cover.

We could be on a...

wedding.

The two sides seen from the opposite direction: The bride looks spectacular, the groom wears a butterfly bow.

From the bottom: only waves of the long wedding dress can be seen.

From the top: you see them connected together, hands in hands.

(The lucky word is 15-1-20-8 "oath")

The "science" tag makes me think that this solution is 90% wrong, I have a feeling the asker is looking for some kind of electrotechnical object, and the "wormhole" was a closer shot.!

Letter B

See me from left, I appear as spectacles.

From left it looks like spectacles

See me from right, I appear as butterfly.

From right it looks like shape of butterfly.

See me from top, I will connect to just one.

From the top it look like one line

See me from bottom, I just a wave.

From Bottom we can see curve of B

Is the answer

Number 8? From left it looks like spectacles, from right like a butterfly, from top it becomes one line and if you orient it in 3D it can look like a wave.

Could you be ...

a whormhole or Einstein–Rosen bridge?

See me from left, I appear as spectacles : this would refer to the way it is usuaylly represented : from a certain POV, it looks like a pair of googles.
See me from right, I appear as butterfly. : again, when you turn a little the POV, it looks like a butterfly
See me from top, I will connect to just one. : here, I think this is about the function of it : connecting one side to the other (far away) side : two places made one by the bridge
See me from bottom, I just a wave. I thinks it is about what Wheeler-Misner used to describe them, comparing whormholes creation with the effect of waves breaking against (eg) a cliff, producing bubbles and foam

Thus, I think that your cardinals were more figurative than litteral

This could be

Beta

See me from left, I appear as spectacles.

Looks like spectacles from left with one handle

See me from right, I appear as a butterfly.

it look like butterfly if we see it up side down

See me from top, I will connect to just one.

See me from bottom, I am just a wave.

Perhaps, it is referred to

a frame (of spectacles) - in a shape, formed by 2 semi-circles, joined with a connector.

As, from the left(or for that matter, even from right)- it appears as

glasses/spects. Here, another angle to interpret the answer is the word - a _spect_ - which links and rightly interprets the intent

In science as well, we have a concept of

frame of reference, which - simply put - refers to the aspect/angle/perspective of our view.

And for other lines of the puzzle

the above-said object appears as different objects when looked from different locations, such as: from bottom - a ripple, ____, from a side, butterfly with its wings stretched,

My Last Guess it infinity

See me from left, I appear as spectacles.

Obviously it looks like specs

See me from right, I appear as a butterfly.

Seems like butterfly

See me from top, I will connect to just one.

Infinity line connect to just one point. Its endless processes.

See me from bottom, I am just a wave.

Shape of symbol is like wave

Hint : This is my lucky number <- 15120

Final answer

delta

See me from left, I appear as spectacles.

delta from the left starts with "d" which appear as spectacles

See me from right, I appear as a butterfly.

delta from the right ends with "a" which could look like a butterfly depending on the font

See me from top, I will connect to just one.

a capital Delta (a change in math) is a triangle which has one point on top

See me from bottom, I am just a wave.

a lowercase delta (derivative in math) shows a wave function (it's been a while since my last calculus class)

Hint

151208 is the postal code for Punjab, India which appears to be on a river delta

Second Answer

Right hand pointing to the sky with pointer finger - (like a "d" in sign language)
See me from left, I appear as spectacles. hand looks like the side view of glasses
See me from right, I appear as a butterfly. clenched fingers look like a butterfly cocoon on a branch
See me from top, I will connect to just one. one finger is pointing and one point connects to one thing
See me from bottom, I am just a wave. a person observing from below may just see a hand raised and think you're waving
Clue (found by FIreCase) 15-1-20-8 = oath - an oath usually requires one to raise their right hand

Previous answer

an upside-down capital P

It could be :

"India" or "The third eye"
It fits four lines of the riddle
151208 is a postal code in India
3:10 today : in 1510, on the 19th of December, Goa, a small Indian region, was conquered
As seen from the left, the occidentals see Indians as being smart people(spectacles)
As seen from the right, the orientals appreciate India for its landscapes(butterfly)
As seen from the top, I will connect to just one(maybe referring to Nepal)
As seen from the bottom, I am just a wave(the south part of India has access to the sea/ocean)
Therefore, I believe the answer is "India". If not, it could be "The third eye"
The link to technology is, in India there's a company called "Third Eye Technologies"
