MIT: Glasses-free 3-D projector [video]

rdmag.com reports that over the past three years, researchers in the Camera Culture group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab have steadily refined a design for a glasses-free, multi-perspective, 3-D video screen, which they hope could provide a cheaper, more practical alternative to holographic video in the short term.

Now they’ve designed a projector that exploits the same technology, which they’ll unveil at this year’s Siggraph, the major conference in computer graphics. The projector can also improve the resolution and contrast of conventional video, which could make it an attractive transitional technology as content producers gradually learn to harness the potential of multi-perspective 3-D.
