Tilting Screen Mimics 3D Images Without Special Glasses [Video]

Tilting Screen Mimics 3D Images Without Special Glasses [Video]

The Tilt Display is a prototype tablet that's able to give the illusion of depth.

The prototype Tilt Display was created by a team of researchers at the University of Bristol. The 10-inch tablet is created using nine different display panels in a 3×3 configuration. Each of the panels can tilt up and down individually to mimic the physical depth and provide the illusion of 3D images. For example, if it’s an image of a landscape, the sky might remain stationary, while the road might be raised to provide the picture with more depth.

Researchers suggest that the Tilt Display could be applicable for collaboration, terrain modeling, 3D video that is beyond auto-stereoscopic 3D, and tangible gaming. Nevertheless, the prototype still has a long way to go before it’s functional and practical for everyday use.
