Apple Bags Patent For 3D Display Technology

Apple has been recently awarded a patent related to a new display technology that will allow users to view 3D and holographic images.

According to Patently Apple, the US Patent and Trademark Office has posted a total of 17 patents that it has granted to the Cupertino-based technology giant.

Some of the patents are related to the iPhone user interface designs, Mini DisplayPort and iTunes software. However, the one which stands out is the patent for 3D Stereoscopic displays.

The technology patented by Apple could make way for state-of-the-art 3D displays that could used to project 3D and holographic images in televisions, computer monitors and cinema displays.

Apple claims in the patent that as the technology will be able to track users' eyes movement, it could used to produce holographic images.

“By tracking movements of the eye locations of the observer, the left and right 3D sub-images are adjusted in response to the tracked eye movements to produce images that mimic a real hologram,” the patent reads.
