Apple patent reveals plans for 3D on steroids
February 13, 2012 | Hogan Keyser
The application, published Friday by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, describes technology that could be incorporated in the company's iOS mobile operating system for use with gaming, photography, video, biometrics, and surveillance applications, according to the Patently Apple blog, which spotted the filing.
Apple's proposed technology essentially uses various techniques to combine aspects of current 3D simulation for handheld devices with facial-recognition technologies, particularly eye-tracking, to create a more reliable and realistic 3D interface for users.
Current 3D simulation for gaming and other applications on handheld devices uses data from various instruments like accelerometers and gyrometers that are built into the devices to recreate "six-axis" positional information, the blog notes, while facial-recognition software has also been improved upon greatly in recent years for biometrics and other purposes.
It appears that the new Apple technology combines those two advancing fields of development, Patently Apple reports.
