New Patent by Apple – 3D Projection, No Glasses Needed

Dont get me wrong, I actually like some movies in 3D.  Not all, but some.  I think the 3D craze has gotten a little out of hand though.  Too many movies in 3D that really shouldn’t be in 3D.  Kid movies, the Pixar, Dreamworks ones, thats fine to have in 3D and works well. But reading up on this patent by Apple I wouldn’t mind 3D done by them – No Glasses Required! 

It’s pretty cool how its set up to work.  Each pixel on the screen is actually projected onto a reflective, textured surface.  This is then bounced off to your left and right eye to produce the 3D effect.  The patent also talks about why the currdent trend of 3D technology and the upcoming ones are not as good. 

Its an interesting patent and I’d like to see how this will come out in the future.  I’m sure it will be a long time before we see it though.
