Samsung has filed a new patent application at the US Patent and Trademark Office for 3D shows that users may connect to their smartphones and tablets.
These screens could exist as TV sets or monitors and show articles varying from photographs and videos into 3D games. The examples included together with the patent also show that consumers may forward the data presented in their smartphones to the 3D screens.
“For instance, if the user is on a call, the screen can show the person they are speaking to at the present time and the screen can also be employed to control the playback of music files that the user forwarded from their handsets,” Android Headlines recorded Friday.
The 3D screen also features a 3D user interface (UI) that would allow users to interact with the device either through touch by stylus pens.
These screens are also sports detectors that detect user-contact using virtual objects introduced by the device using infrared radiation or ultrasound waves to track how the individual interacts with the content, the report included.
While patents do not always bring about a commercialized product, it traces towards how the South Korean giant may market 3D screens in the future.
There’s been no statement from the company as of now regarding the newly-filed patent.
The Seoul-based company launched a 3D TV set in 2010 that failed to achieve commercial success because of the inconveniences associated with using the products.
In November 2018, Samsung registered patents associated with holographic technology which uses the present screen apparatus for showing high-resolution images that the company might include in future foldable handsets.
