Wired News heeft wat info over een nieuwe door een paar engelse slimbo's uitgevogelde technologie waarmee het mogelijk is om 3D beelden weer te geven zonder 3D brilletje:
Like 3-D movies viewed through colored glasses, the display exploits the principles of stereo vision, or stereopsis. When slightly different images of a scene are presented to each eye, the viewers' brain stitches them together to create an illusion of depth.
However, unlike competing displays that use a system of bars or directional filters to beam different images to each eye, this screen uses a backlighting system inspired by holographic techniques to direct the different images to the eyes.
Like a standard video signal, the images are interlaced and presented simultaneously: All the even lines in the image are directed at one eye, all the odd lines directed at the other. As long as the viewer is in the right spot, objects appear to hover anywhere from 8 inches in front of the screen to 16 inches behind it.
