Hi guys. Thanks for the answers. Since my friend is really the expert and I'm just trying to help him I'm attaching the description from the patent office. Basically this patent is more relavant to movie's photopraphy. I hope it help to shed some light on the patent.
A method and device for automatically controlling a polarizing filter, featuring automatically sensing, measuring, and analyzing at least one parameter associated with direction of a polarizing filter by an electronic direction/motion sensing mechanism, receiving a signal from the electronic direction/motion sensing mechanism relating to the at least one parameter associated with direction of the polarizing filter by a rotation control circuit, and receiving a signal from the rotation control circuit relating to the at least one parameter associated with direction of the polarizing filter by a polarizing filter rotating mechanism for automatically rotating the polarizing filter. The invention is primarily directed to applications of a polarizing filter in the field of photography, however, it clearly can be directed to applications of a polarizing filter in a variety of other fields involving the use of electromagnetic radiation for viewing, imaging and/or projecting through short or long distances, for example, involving the use of a microscope, binoculars, a telescope, or a laser beam device.
