Nintendo Files Patent For "Eye-Tracking Enabled 3D Viewing" Technology

Patent1

The glasses-free 3D record contained within a 3DS was arguably forward of a time. Eventually though, Nintendo motionless to concentration on a some-more permitted and affordable 2DS line. Since then, it has shifted a courtesy to a Switch.

So, will 3D gaming ever make a return? If a new eye-tracking obvious is anything to go by, maybe it will. It’s been detected Nintendo filed a obvious focus for “Eye Tracking Enabled 3D Viewing” final year in September, that was currently published by a United States Patent and Trademark Office. The thought behind it is to yield an optimal 3D observation angle for radio users.

The focus mentions how this obvious stems from prior ones dating behind to 2010. It afterwards goes on to residence a common issues when observation 3D on radio sets. To solve existent problems, a devise is to place an eye-tracking device on a tip of a arrangement section and concede it to lane users with a assistance of a marker. This will concede for a best 3D picture probable – with no special eyeglasses or 3D displays required. In a above illustration, a user wears a pen on their glasses. Noticeably, it does not block vision, like existent technology.

As explained by Digital Trends, a discuss of “viewpoint transformation detection” to yield “collision-related diversion proof benefits” in a application, could yield many advantages within certain games. The focus itself goes onto discuss additional benefits, such as how a record would concede “a actor to evasion projectiles” and give “a diversion impression an ability to ‘see’ a actor when not behind line-of-sight obstacles”.

It’s value indicating out a picture shown in a focus is not new and indeed dates behind to 2014. Once again, a news here is a filing and edition of a patent. There’s no pledge anything will indeed come of this application, either.

Would we like to see a lapse of 3D on a newer Nintendo system? Tell us below.
