Apple Patents a Glasses-Free 3-D Video Projector.

3-D televisions are selling like hotcakes and it turns out Apple Inc. is jumping in on the game and are not impressed with the current 3-D technology - so what do they do? Patent their own technology...!
Leave it to Apple to patent a design where we can all watch a 3-D movie WITHOUT wearing those silly glasses....AND view the display from multiple angles.
Each pixel would be projected onto a reflective, textured surface, which is then bounced into a viewer's left and right eye separately, producing the 3D, or stereoscopic, effect. [The system] would sense the locations of both eyes of each viewer, so multiple people could watch from a variety of angles.
...pretty sweet!
