There have been lots of 3 color patents out there from many sources.

But ... so far only one of those ideas have surfaced as products ... Sigma's Foveon based cameras.

Almost all other patents are rather complicated stuff where you build the individual detectors from several tiny parts. Something that probably is not practical in real life.

Of course ... some 3 layer color sensors to compete with Foveon would be very nice.
