Apple has recently applied for a patent for a holographic projections from 3D screens.

It may not be long before a smartphone feature that people have been dreaming about – the ability to project holographic displays that users can interact with – may become a reality.

Apple has recently patented an “Interactive Three-Dimensional Display System” that allows users to interact with 3D projected images formed in the air. The patent was filed in October 2012 and was published by the US Patent and Trademark Office last April 24th.

According to the documentation, the display structure may include a laser projection system or an optical system based on parabolic mirrors or lenses to project three-dimensional images into mid-air. A sensor system will also be built into the device to allow the user to interact with the projected images. The sensor system will monitor the user’s interactions with the projected image and the projected image will be updated and changed accordingly.
