With Infosys patent, mobile devices can beam 3D images
By 2010, the mobile device will offer a 3D experience in gaming, medicine and movies. CNET.com reports that a rich user experience on a holographic mobile handset will become a reality based on a patent granted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to Infosys.
Infosys' patent from USPTO states that the holographic mobile phone incorporates a robust processor that converts 2D photographs into 3D holograms using the Fourier algorithm. It enables communications networks to beam unprocessed data that is translated into 3D holographic images on the mobile device without any loss in resolution.
A handheld mobile device that captures, sends, receives and projects three-dimensional images can be used in a wide range of applications by professionals such as doctors and engineers.
