3D on 2D screen patent

4 Jul, 2014

Nintendo files a patent for a device that enables 3D viewing on 2D displays. Other features of this device are sense of smell and virtual wind. Using a tracking system, the hypothetical device determines the position of the player or where the player is looking, and determines the player’s viewpoint. This would produce a parallax effect, where images in the foreground move faster and further than images in the background, creating a sense of depth.
