Apple patents interface for 3D objects creation



Apple is going to obtain a patent for 'Working with 3D objects'. It implies the technology of generating, modifying, and manipulating 3D objects with the help of 3D gesture inputs.

Three-dimensional objects can be modified using 3D gesture inputs. For example, a 3D object shown on a touch-sensitive display can be detected, and a 3D gesture input that includes a movement of a finger or a pointing device in proximity to a surface of the touch-sensitive display can be detected. Detecting the 3D gesture input can include measuring a distance between the finger or the pointing device and a surface of the display. The 3D object can be modified according to the 3D gesture input, and the updated 3D object can be shown on the touch-sensitive display.

The 3D object can be generated based on two types of inputs. The first is a touch or a two-dimensional (2D) gesture input. The second is 3D gesture input which implies detecting a movements in proximity to a surface of the screen.
