MIT Lab Develops Glasses-Free 3D TV
A new method for producing multiple-perspective 3D images allows viewers to leave those bulky specs behind.
MIT Media Lab’s Camera Culture is developing a 3D display screen that does not require the use of special 3D glasses. While holographic TVs remain some distance in the future, this project is a much more practical solution in the short term. The project was featured in this summer’s Siggraph computer-graphics conference, where the MIT Media Lab’s Camera Culture group offered a new approach to multiple-perspective, glasses-free 3D display.
Douglas Lanman, a postdoc at the Media Lab says of the glasses-free 3D screen:
