A new patent reveals that Apple could be considering a 3D user interface for the iPhone. AppleInsider reports that the patent titled “Sensor Based Display Environment” would use data from the gyroscope and sensors to navigate the system.
In the application, Apple notes that problems can occur when using a 3D user interface with a touchscreen. The application refers to 3D as polygons on the screen of a traditional iPhone, rather than the “illusion” of 3D by sending two different images to each eye with a new, special display.
