Christoph H Krah: Three-dimensional imaging and display system. Apple, Morrison & Foerster, September 13, 2011: US08018579 (239 worldwide citation)

A three-dimensional imaging and display system is provided in which user input is optically detected in an imaging volume by measuring the path length of an amplitude modulated scanning beam as a function of the phase shift thereof. Visual image user feedback concerning the detected user input is pr ...

Michael Patrick Gibas: True three-dimensional imaging and display system. Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, Jenkens & Gilchrist P C, October 7, 1997: US05675377 (28 worldwide citation)

A scene is imaged from a plurality of points of view to generate plural images each including an image value and distance for each picture element. The images are converted to a principle point of view to generate a non-standard image that accounts for hidden objects in the scene from the perspectiv ...
