Stereo Display Without Glasses
Posted Thu July 26, 2001 @04:11PM

Hardware Yes you read right - no bulky eyewear! StereoGraphics (makers of the popular CrystalEyes 3D stereo visualization technology) has introduced an autostereoscopic display.

The system uses a digital flat panel display to yield true depth perception provided by Stereo3D technology. The system works by separating the left and right eye frames for display on even and odd pixels. By lighting the pixels at an angle from behind, the correct frame is viewed by each eye delivering the same effect as the bulky glasses.

By several accounts this technology works well and gives the user a realistic 3D experience. By removing the requirement for eyewear, the new system allows several people to share the experience at once. Until I get mine, I'll have to rely on 3D "perspective" viewing.
