Apparently I am not alone in thinking that the current crop 3-D technology needs to be improved. First on my list is to get rid of the 3-D glasses. Apple agrees with me, and filed for a patent in 2005 on technology to do just that. As the image to the right clearly explains (cough), the process works by bouncing pixels off a reflective surface to the left and right eyes. I do not think that we will see this technology anytime soon in an Apple product, but I hope it is not too far into the future. Take a look at the G4tv.com (http://g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/708960/Apple-Patents-New-3D-Projection-Technology----No-Glasses-Needed.html?utm_source=g4tv&utm_medium=rssfeeds&utm_campaign=TheFeed) article for more information.

The patent also delves into why other 3D technology isn‚??t good enough. It calls out the current systems being used by auto-stereoscopic phones and presumably the Nintendo 3DS. Sharp and Toshiba plan on releasing glasses-less 3D TVs in Japan by the end of the year. The problem with their technology, according to the patent, is that a need still exists for the viewer to remain stationary. Apple‚??s goal is to offer consumers affordable and practical 3D technology.
