    It kinda reminds me of Johnny Lee´s wii project and of course 3ds.  But this I think it would be first time that display is multiuser and glasses free capable..  i am sure it'll be presented publicly soon

    check it here

    Why'd it have to be Apple? They jack up the price on *everything*.

    I don't get why people love Apple. They're a company who overcharges waaaaayyy too much for the product.

    Pretty soon all 3D will be done without the aid of glasses. The first generation of 3D televisions are already obsolete.

    Ahh... good old Apple, taking old technology that already exists somewhere else, claiming it as an innovation and then charge it at 3 times to original price.

    I heard quite recently that Toshiba planned to release some 'Naked eye 3D' TV models by the end of this year, whatever happens this is why I wouldn't invest in a current 3D TV

    My lord, what is with all of the Apple hate here?

    I'm by no means a fanboy, or even a fan for that matter, but hot dog!

    I hope people realize how unlikely it is that this will ever become a product. Apple files countless of patents every year, of which only a fraction gets implemented into their products. All this means is that other companies can't use this idea.

    Current technologies for holographic images require powerful CPUs and GPUs to work. This technology has some kind of a workaround for that.
    Maybe aggressive hardware optimizations, like dedicated hardware for some of the heaviest functions.
