3DIcon Files Lead Patent Application
TULSA, Okla., Dec. 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 3DIcon Corporation (OTCBB:TDCP), a developer of volumetric, three-dimensional projection and display technologies, today announced it filed an initial patent application directed at the use of down conversion materials with its core technologies. The Company expects to file additional applications based on positive results.
The Company has been actively testing new materials to facilitate the completion of its Trade Show Prototype, a larger and more sophisticated version of its lab prototype, for use in seeking partners for commercialization. The use of down conversion material is one of the alternatives the company has been investigating and may have important beneficial effects including higher efficiency giving a brighter image, and requiring less laser power which minimizes heating effects. It is also possible that this approach will allow for a meaningful reduction in the cost of the final display.
As part of its Intellectual Property strategy, the Company will continue to protect any new materials and methodologies that may be used in its CSpace® 3D display system.
