Apple’s 3D Glassless iPhone possible after awarded patent

by Gareth Mankoo

Apple have never stepped back from giving us more than we’ve ever seen. And just when you feel they cannot bring all that big a surprise, we have a reason to believe that the best is only beginning to show. The company was recently awarded a US patent for stereoscopic 3D display technology. Some key points of the patent reveal that the images are interpreted as 3D by both eyes and do not require the aid of glasses. This brings about the possibility of multiple observers, additionally aided by eye-movement study that will enable horizontal and vertical parallax. Tiny dome shaped vectors may be used to adjust the projections.

This may be influential in the future design of the iPad or the iPhone or even sophisticated desktop systems and laptops.
