    Just found out this. Seems really nice n coooooool. Just made me realize why it feels so abnormal while video chatting. Hope it`s not just one of Apple`s many patents which never made it in real world implementation. Here`s a link to full patent filing. Also the idea to use it in moblie phones too sounds nice. No more an ugly lens wud be seen on your phone.

    seems like a cool idea. I wonder how much it would cost to actually implement it.

    It is also one of the proposed technologies in some form of Apple multi touch screen, (rather than a stylus or single finger and touch pad, the image sensors merely recognise the position and movement of fingers).

    I dont think this is for a built in iSight, more a built in optical sensor for lighting a laptop display. You know how annoying it is when you get sunlight on your display, with this sensor you can automatically adjust your contrast and intensity to suite.
