  • Patent number: 10380828
    Abstract: A method of displaying stereoscopic 3D images of a casino game apparatus is provided. Positions of heads of two or more viewers of a display device are determined. Viewpoints of the two or more viewers are determined based, at least in part, on the head positions. Stereoscopic 3D images depicting the casino game apparatus from approximately the viewpoints of the two or more viewers are generated. A first stereoscopic image of the game apparatus from the first viewpoint is displayed with a set of pixels configured to be visible to the first viewer. A second stereoscopic image of the game apparatus from the second viewpoint is displayed with a set of pixels configured to be visible to the second viewer. The first and second stereoscopic images of the game apparatus are displayed simultaneously to the first and second viewers based, at least in part, on the first and second viewpoints.

  • Publication number: 20160086422
    Abstract: Three-dimensional displays and related techniques are provided. A method of generating a stereoscopic 3D image of a casino game apparatus is provided. A first static 2D image may be applied to a surface in a virtual 3D environment as a first texture of the surface in a first view of the virtual 3D environment. A second static 2D image may be applied to the surface in the virtual 3D environment as a second texture of the surface in a second view of the virtual 3D environment. A stereoscopic 3D image of the casino game apparatus may be generated, the stereoscopic 3D image comprising the first view of the virtual 3D environment with the first static 2D image applied as the first texture to the surface and the second view of the virtual 3D environment with the second static 2D image applied as the second texture to the surface.
