Samsung is attempting to prove to jurors that Apple stole the technology for its patents and has presented the Mitsubishi 'Diamond Touch' as evidence, reports BGR. The company says it can't be guilty of copying a technology that was stolen in the first place.
Dubbed "Diamond Touch," Samsung's legal team presented a massive touchscreen table built by Mitsubishi to the jury in an effort to show that Apple's patent on pinch-to-zoom technology should not be valid because it already existed for years before the first iPhone launched. What's more, Samsung suggested that Apple knowingly stole the technology when its witness, Mitsubishi engineer Adam Bogue, testified that he showed the Diamond Touch to Apple engineers back in 2003.
The Diamond Touch uses a projector and a large multi-touch surface to let users draw and perform other tasks. Notably, it features the pinch-to-zoom functionality that iOS users are familiar with. Since the device existed when Apple was granted its pinch-to-zoom patent, Samsung is arguing that the patent should be considered invalid.
