Nintendo accused of stealing 3DS 'glasses-free' tech

0

Tomita Technology, a company founded by a former Sony engineer, is accusing Nintendo of thieving technology to create its "glasses-free" 3DS handheld. Naturally, Tomita is suing like a boss.

According to the suit, Tomita holds U.S. Patent No. 7,417,664, which is a "Stereoscopic Image Picking Up and Display System Based Upon Optical Axes Cross-Point Information." The patent covers technology that allows for "displaying stereoscopic images on-screen for viewing with the naked eye," which indeed relates to the 3DS.

Another day, another hardware patent suit. Considering Tomita currently has over 70 patents, they must get to do this every other week.
