New patent reveals a possible new way to control 3DS

So it looks like the people over at Nintendo have an idea on how to make a new control feature for the 3DS. The new control patent has an adapter on the inner camera that lets it map out where the stylus would be on the top 3D-enabled screen and the stylus would have some kind of a marker to help to track it’s location. It would be able to apply a sense of depth to pointing at things and this adapter would also be applied to the outer 3D cameras as well. Augmented Reality would also be benefitted from this idea.
