Scanning aperture three dimensional display device

These are the first in a series of patents filed a couple of years ago by me and my business partner, David Hartkop, for a three-dimensional flat-screen display. It would work without glasses and allow for a wide viewing range. Essentially, you could display a 3D object on the screen and view it from different angles, relative to your viewing position. It would have been great, except our funding for the second prototype fell through when the majority of our claims were rejected by the patent office, because it was found they infringed on a similar patent by a Japanese company who had thought of it first.
Our original prototype resides in an unmarked crate in a secret warehouse, but you can read the patents here.

David has since started a coffee company around a solar coffee roaster he designed and built.
