Nintendo have made many attempts with 3D in the past with the Nintendo 3DS and even the unreleased GameCube 3D screen prototype! Well they may not be done with it just yet!
Today a new interesting patent by Nintendo was discovered that allows eye tracking 3D for regular TVs similar to the tracker featured in the New Nintendo 3DS!
Check it out below:
The application says:
Viewpoint movement detection can provide collision-related game logic benefits such as allowing a player to dodge projectiles, giving a game character an ability to ‘see’ the player when not behind line-of-sight obstacles, and other advantages,
This is unlikely to become a final product (as Nintendo has been abandoning 3D with the 2DS) and it is likely Nintendo just experimenting but this could give us clues for the interesting future ahead for the company!
If we have any more information to share we will cover it here at NintendoSoup so stay tuned for more!
