Apple’s new iPad 5 is going to have 3D gesture

Written by
Imagine the iPad’s touch screen gaining a third dimension, enabling
users to extract a 2D image, then manipulate it using new gestures, such
as ‘pull’, ‘push’ and ‘sculpt’. That’s the gist of an Apple patent
filed in 2012 and published Tuesday by the U.S. Patent and Trademark
Office.
Titled ‘Working with 3D Objects,’ the patent outlines a touch screen interface where users “generate and manipulate 3D objects using 3D gesture inputs.” At the core, the technology employs both capacitive touch sensors and proximity sensors in the iDevice screen…
To create a 3D object from a 2D image on the screen, the Apple patent
describes a new gesture called pull, activated by touching an object.
For instance, to create a 3D triangle, you would touch the 2D version
in three places, then hover for a certain period of time. The height of
the 3D triangle is then determined by how far you pull, according to AppleInsider.
Other shapes could be created by combining the usual pinch gesture
with the new pull gesture. A user could also add the ‘spread’ gesture
with the pull to form a 3D object.
Along with 3D shapes, the Apple patent also outlines the ability to
‘sculpt’ items, using ‘twist’ to manipulate a clay-like 3D object. The
3D gestures could also be manipulate iDevice controls, such as buttons
and sliders to change the color and brightness of objects.
