A new 3D display device doesn't require special glasses to enjoy the 3D effects.

At  Siggraph 2010 in Los Angeles, Sony showcased the prototype of its 360-degree Autostereoscopic Display. Autostereoscopic technology is considered to be the future of 3D, and does not require special 3D glasses. The device, known as the Ray Modeler, is cylindrical in shape and features LED light sources to enable viewing of full color volumetric objects from all directions. It also allows users to control the display’s orientation with hand gestures.

Sony says that the Ray Modeler will have applications in digital signage, video games and futuristic telecommunication.
