Huge ultra-realistic outdoor 3D displays without glasses planned for next year

  • The objective is to create a realistic 3D illusion that changes as viewers walk or fly around the virtual object, with up to several thousand 3D viewing zones — each zone displaying a different view. TU Vienna spinoff TriLite Technologies has created a prototype with a resolution of 5 x 3 pixels, enough to prove that the concept works.
  • Current 3D movies only show two different pictures — one slightly different for each eye. The new display can create hundreds or thousands of pictures — one for each viewing location (or viewer). Each 3D pixel (“trixel”) is created by three lasers and a moveable mirror. The mirror directs the laser beams across the field of vision.
  • The researchers expect the second prototype to be finished by mid-2015, with commercial launch scheduled for 2016. And yes, existing 3D movies can be converted into the new format, the researchers say.
