Three-dimensional (3D) technology has been garnering quite a following for itself, most recently for teaming up with Apple.
According to PatentlyApple, the iPhone 5, which is the next generation of iPhone, has a proposed 3D camera that will become the new standard.
In addition to expected upgrades of resolution and color, the camera will utilize the combined technologies of Laser, LIDAR and RADAR, giving it the ability to create 3D imagery. Additionally, it will be capable of both facial recognition and facial gesturing recognition.
While cameras that rely on 3D technology are already on the market, the scope of what they can accomplish is still considered limited. But with the sensors Apple plans to implement, it is poised to become the most sophisticated camera on the smartphone market.
