Researchers develop 3D TV concept that dispenses glasses

A group of students from MIT Media Lab is working on a 3D television concept that dispenses with the use of special glasses.

The researchers propose a television model with three layers of LCD that work simultaneously, giving the feeling of depth in the image. Depending on the place you are looking at, you will be able to see the images in different perspectives.

This effect, called “3D multiview”, would accurately simulate the act of looking at an object, as if it were a hologram.

Unfortunately, there is still no existing technology to create such a device. This is because the current LCD screens do not “blink” at a frequency high enough to create the effect. In addition, in order to record properly, it would be necessary to capture the same image at 30 different angles.

It is worth remembering that Toshiba is a pioneer in this type of resource, which is available in countries like Germany and Japan, in a 55-inch model with 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160), for conventional programming, and 1,280 x 720 for 3D function.

In the video below (in English) the creators of the concept explain more details about the idea.
