Apple to bite into 3D market with movie specs

When patent number 20100079356 was published on the US Patent and Trademark Office website at the beginning of this month, it was first assumed that it was an April Fool joke.

But now it appears that plans for Apple to develop electronic spectacles that will allow the wearer to watch 3D films on the move are more rooted in reality than it at first seemed.

If the spectacles are indeed in development they will revolutionise the way films can be enjoyed on Apple's major products — the iPod, iPhone and iPad – which currently suffer from the fact that they all have relatively small screens.
