Apple 3D Head-Tracking for Rhino

There’s been a lot of buzz in the Apple blogosphere over a patent for 3D head-tracking. Apple recently filed for a technology that allows users to move an object (on a computer screen) by simply moving their head or body. There’s no need for a mouse or keyboard any more; just look behind an image and it will rotate with you. To help visualize this, Software Advice put together a video of how this could be used in 3D modeling.

For me...absolutely useless

The technology would be capable of defining the visual properties of different surfaces, and determining how well it would reflect light. Using this, images of the user and their environment could be recreated on the screen with effects added
