It's certainly a prospect we've heard of and discussed before. But only now have we seen conclusive evidence from Apple that this rumored possibility may ultimately become reality.
On Thursday, the US Patent & Trademark Office published a patent application from Apple that illustrates in immense detail how Apple may deploy motion sensors to create a pretty sweet virtual three-dimensional interface for iDevices.
Here's how Apple describes the technology:
A three-dimensional ("3D") display environment for mobile device is disclosed that uses orientation data from one or more onboard sensors to automatically determine and display a perspective projection of the 3D display environment based on the orientation data without the user physically interacting with (e.g., touching) the display.
