Troyer Patent Portfolio update: Canadian patent granted January 15, 2013 that contains combination claims of Troyer’s US patents 2001, 2005, 2006 and 2012. The Canadian patent office is very thorough, especially with the upgraded global search engines. This is an important validation for Troyer, declaring that there is no prior art for her innovation.
Basic patent: laser projector apparatus with expanded laser beam directed to a reflective light valve with the 635 nm red or over. Cyan can be added to the blue green. Great blacks and whites are created and colors in the full spectrum (like nature). The spatially modulated laser beams keeps their inherent quality of polarization, collimation and coherence to the screen. The images have IF IT IS—infinite focus, instant transformation and innate sharpness automatically adjusting to any irregular surfaces such as domes and curved screens. The laser apparatus is the linchpin for the HIVE: holographic immersive virtual environments (holodeck playpen space); edutainment (content); edutainer (performance).
Each spatially modulated pixel has an infinite depth of focus attribute that provides sharp 3D depth and sharp focused dimensional images (domes, simulation, irregular surfaces, water screens, etc.). The laser apparatus includes a camera/ sensor as part of the projector. The laser apparatus is like an overhead projector. Film, slides, microscopic organisms, live action etc. can be captured by the camera and amplified without pixels to a curved screen or dome image. Live action gestures can be sensor evaluated (Kinect camera) and integrated. Small dimensional high resolution pictures from an OLED or other device can be captured. A hologram or 3D laser modulated image is captured and amplified.
The laser apparatus can be an advanced telecine copying film; also video and still images (slides). The telecine images are captured on a small curved screen, the video feed transformed to full color Z depth dimensional moving pictures. The capture is real time and is agnostic to the frame rate. The laser apparatus is a digital intermediary tool that provides instant transformation to images (full color, curved space, Z depth factor, 2D to 3D).
