Patent for 3D Projector Won By Apple- No Need to Wear 3D Glasses Now

Patent for 3D Projector Won By Apple- No Need to Wear 3D Glasses NowU.S patent for the display system allowing many people to view high quality 3D image that isprojected on a screen goes to Apple. This new technology would enable people to view 3Dimages without wearing the special 3D glasses, and they would be able to view 3D graphics notconsidering the location where they are sitting.After the success of 3D movies in theaters, manufacturers of home electronics are hopeful thatthe 3D technique will attract customers, and they will purchase new Blu Ray players or new TVsets. But 3D technology does not just apply to the entertainment field- there are many otheruses of 3D as well- like education, advertising, weather diagnostics, battlefield simulation, airtraffic control, flight simulation, and medical diagnostics etc. This US patent for 3D display wasawarded to Apple on Tuesday.You can easily imagine the excitement of this technology. As you know, most 3D display requireviewers to wear 3D glasses, and this was the major hindrance to the fun and excitement.The patent of Apple is about using a reflective screen that comes with a rippled texture- togenerate a projection system that is autostereoscopic by nature. This means that differentimages can be projected to each eye, and you don’t have to wear glasses for it.Confused how it works? Here’s how:This smart system detects the viewer’s eyes to calculate their position, and then it projects itspixels on your eyes- this works separately for both eyes. If this can be done for one person, thenit can be done for multiple persons too.But Apple is not the only organization that is working to say goodbye to 3D glasses. At Ceatecelectronics show, Toshiba exhibited special glass free TV sets in Japan, which will be open forsale later this month.Apart from that, handheld 3DS by Nintendo will allow players to enjoy 3D games, withoutthe need of glasses. It will be out for sale in February in Japan and March in U.S, Australia andEurope.
