MIT delivers glasses-free 3D to every seat in the cinema
Glasses-free 3D cinema is one step closer after a team from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) and Israel's Weizmann Institute of Science presented an approach that covered every seat in a theatre. The prototype, called Cinema 3D, uses an array of lenses and mirrors to deliver the 3D effect to an audience.
On the MIT website Wojciech Matusik, an MIT professor and a co-author of the paper presenting the technology, said: "Existing approaches to glasses-free 3D require screens whose resolution requirements are so enormous that they are completely impractical. This is the first technical approach that allows for glasses-free 3-D on a large scale."
The lead researcher on the paper is Weizmann PhD Netalee Efrat with co-authors including MIT research technician Mike Foshey; former CSAIL postdoc Piotr Didyk; and Weizmann researcher professor Anat Levin. Efrat presented the paper at Siggraph computer-graphics conference in Anaheim, California that was held July 34 to 28.
