    New System Lets Designers And Researchers “Draw” In 3D Space

    A new 3D interactive system created by researchers at the University of Montreal allows designers and builders to “draw” in scenes in real time. By projecting images on a thin material, the system, called Hyve-3D, allows you to swipe through scenes and make colors and shapes appear on walls and floors. It also allows for multi-user interaction – one designer can sketch… Read More

  • Apple Researching Combined 2D/3D Glassesless Displays

    Apple Researching Combined 2D/3D Glassesless Displays

    Apple is looking into a way to provide both 3D and 2D images from the same display, without requiring any special ocular equipment like 3D glasses, according to a new patent application (via AppleInsider). The display would use gaze-tracking to serve specific images to viewers, and would be able to actually provide different images to multiple viewers at the same time. The display tech would… Read More
