Apple’s New Patent Allows Gesture UI Manipulation of 3D Objects for iOS

Termed “Working with 3D Objects”, the new patent that got approved was a feather in Apple’s cap. Via this methodology consumers may create and handle 3D objects with efficiency. It could be displayed on an iPad and would track the location and movement of the user’s fingers near the screen. In other words, by operating on a 2D gadget you may enter the 3D realm. The usual act that begets an image is a pinching movement. But what this patent lets you do is actually pick the image right off the surface into the air with your fingers. Beyond that it is manipulation all the way. Finally, you may terminate the program by simply widening your fingers. It is literally magic and portends a future of 3D modeling.  

The device could be used for sculpting in the times which are yet to come. Like Kinect and Leap Motion, this form of gesture technology has myriad uses which will emerge in tandem with mankind’s evolution. Computer Aided Design (CAD) too is one sector where this technique could come in handy. The Samsung Galaxy S4 has an “Air Gesture” which functions in a similar manner. Apple is on the joyride of its life with this newly added creative function in its already broad spectrum of capabilities. Things will pick up pace from here onwards as Apple Incorporated moves from a one-dimensional existence to a multi-dimensional universe of possibilities.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
