Apple Patent Reveals Pans for Holographic Display

Apple HologramRichard Gray writes in the Telegraph:

A recently granted patent reveals that Apple, the company behind the iPod and iPhone, has been working on a new type of display screen that produces three dimensional and even holographic images without the need for glasses.

The technology could be used to produce a new generation of televisions, computer monitors and cinema screens that would provide viewers with a more realistic experience.

The system relies upon a special screen that is dotted with tiny pixel-sized domes that deflect images taken from slightly different angles into the right and left eye of the viewer.

By presenting images taken from slightly different angles to the right and left eye, this creates a stereoscopic image that the brain interprets as three-dimensional.

    Get real. Apple is simply trying to forecast the nature of a holography screen that someone else, invents, engineers and produces. They have no idea and are just shooting out a broad based patent in the hopes of hitting a target, simply ass hats going for greed.

    Why is it that, whenever we see something really innovative being developed, it is frequently from Apple? Have those dastardly people hired all the good programmers, designers, and engineers only to leave the culls for Microsoft and others? That hardly seems fair. Come on, Mr. Jobs, give the others a chance! YOu complained when MS was engaging in monopolistic practices, why are you doing it now?
