Motorola recently filed a patent application that could potentially see 3D images, videos and games arrive on your cellphone. This application which was filed with the USPTO caters for clamshell devices, where a 2D image is rendered while the phone is flipped open, only to be rendered in 3D whenever the clamshell remains closed.
“A cover is mechanically coupled to the housing and may be moved to overlie the display. The cover includes an optical element, such as a transparent lenticular material, through which the display may be viewed. The display presents images in two dimensions, and when the cover is “open“, the operator sees the displayed images, for example, diagrams and text, in two dimensions. However, when the cover is “closed“, the operator perceives the images presented through the optical element as three dimensional.”
Hmmm, 3D is looking to be the next big thing, but we’re not too sure how this will impact battery life and entry-level costs in various devices.
