    Default Job Opening at Apple Hints Towards Company Continuing to Pursue 3D Technology


    A recently posted job opening on Apple’s careers website hints towards the Cupertino California company continuing to pursue 3D technology integration, a feature which has not yet been implemented.

    The job opening is listed as “Computer Vision specialist to strengthen its multi-view stereo research group.” Furthermore, the listing asks for a person with a “Ph.D. degree in a Computer Vision related field such as Mathematics, Physics or Computer Science. You should be a confident and experienced C programmer.” The job title is currently being classified as an iOS Software Engineer and also includes requirements for the following: “Multi-view stereo and 3D reconstruction, Inpainting of occluded geometry and texture data, SLAM, Mesh texturing techniques, Large scale bundle adjustment, Cameras and surfaces in a 3D environment.”

    With the company yet to include 3D technology in its products and the fact that both HTC and LG have included 3D cameras and passive 3D displays onto some of their Android offerings it seems obvious that Apple is making an effort to implement the technology. It’ll be interesting to see what Apple comes up with the inclusion of 3D technology in the iOS devices and perhaps even the rumored “iTV.” That being said, it is likely that we won’t be seeing any 3D display or 3D cameras on our beloved Apple devices anytime in the near future, but we can continue to dream.

    Trust me, if you saw some of the newer glasses-free 3D camera screens, you'd want it. You'd be picking your jaw off the floor. Once you get used to seeing photos in 3D, regular 2D looks as lifeless as old black & white photos.
