MIT Researchers Developing Intense New Glasses-Free 3D Projector

Glasses-free 3D projection is something that a lot of tech companies, including the Camera Culture Group at MIT’s Media Lab, have been working on for the past three years. The idea is to create a glasses-free, multiperspective, 3D video screen. This screen could provide a cheaper, more practical alternative to holographic video in the short run.

Well it seems as if a quantumhas been developed that exploits the same technology, which the Camera Culture Group will unveil at this year’s Siggraph, the biggest computer graphics conference in the world. In addition to that, this quantumis also said to be able to improve the resolution and contrast of conventional video, which could make it a nice transitional technology as content producers learn to utilize multiperspective 3D technology more efficiently.

Multiperspective 3D is different from stereoscopic 3D in that is the 3D objects allow the viewer to move among them, as if actually in the environment. This means that multiperspective 3D could applications in areas like collaborative design or medical imaging in addition to entertainment. The researchers at MIT built a prototype of their system with the heart of it being a pair of liquid-crystal modulators that are positioned between the light source and the lens. Patterns or light and dark on the first modulator turn it into a bank of slightly angled light emitters. Light passing through the second emitter only does so at a certain angle as a result. The combinations of the patterns that the two modulators display ensures that viewers will see slightly different images from different angles.

In addition to that, the researchers also built a prototype screen that widens the angle from which their projector’s images are viewed. This new screen combines two lenticular lenses similar to the type used to create rough 3D effects reminiscent of old children’s books.

Each modulator displays six different patterns for every frame of video, which produce eight different viewing angles. At a high enough display rate, our visual system will combine information from different images automatically. The modulators are capable of refreshing their patterns at 240 hertz, or 240 times per second. This means that even at six patterns per frame, the system is capable of playing video at a rate of 40 hertz. Even though this is a lower refresh rate than what is common in today’s HDTVs it is still higher than the 24 frames per second that is standard in films.

I don’t know how I feel about glasses-free 3D projection at the moment. I’ve never really been much of an enthusiast for regular 3D. I will say that I like the way 3D movies are doing more internal 3D than external. What I mean by that is that the picture looks more like an open window with the scenes looking like I could walk right into them as opposed to just a bunch of things flying off the screen out at you. Although, this new technology could be the very first steps into creating actual holographic projection so there’s that.

5 Reasons You Need Pico Genie A100 This Summer

5 Reasons You Need Pico Genie A100 This Summer

The Pico Genie A100 has a very special new price and here is why the  affordable pocket sized quantum projector will work for you this summer:

  1. Keep the kids educated – 6 weeks is a long holiday for anyone, especially your children, so ensure you keep them at the top of the class by encouraging the use educational content and games.
  2. Entertainment – We know how hard it is to find something good on TV when it’s grey and cloudy, so why not enjoy the latest blockbuster from your iPhone / iPod
  3. Travel – You’ve packed your sun cream and your passports but how about a movie for the flight or relaxing on a rainy day. From Glamping to jet-setting, it’s small enough to fit neatly in your pocket or bag for a cinematic experience.
  4. Business – Take everything you need for your meeting in your pocket and project wherever you are. Ideal for those on the go or meeting with those who are.
  5. Sports – 2014 is another stellar year for sporting events, from Commonwealth Games, Wimbledon, F1, World Cup and more, now you can keep up with the game straight from your pocket. Also, if you’re playing a few games yourself then why not record it on your phone / iPod and then play it straight back?! Great for perfecting your improving your own skill (or just embarrassing your friends by sharing their lack of skill with everyone).

I Predict a Ritot! – New quantum projector Watch

I Predict a Ritot! – New quantum projector Watch

The latest crowd funded innovation is about to arrive… on your wrist!

Ritot quantum projector watch

Throw away that tired old watch with the minute hand that sticks and worn out strap, become a modern style icon with the new Ritot quantum projector watch!

Bringing wearable tech to the masses, we can see this challenging the big brands with its reasonable price tag and unique design. Ritot has created the “World’s first projection watch” which they claim will project out content from your smartphone on to the back of your hand.

Simple design will appeal to those who love having the latest tech but don’t want to feel bogged down by lots of devices. “Ritot will help you to stay on top of things with vibrating notifications, messages and alerts. Dismiss a notification with a shake of your wrist”. Merging something you would probably be wearing anyway (watch) with technology that’s actually useful in keeping you up to date with calls, texts, memos and more is something Personal quantum projector like the look of.

Works with: iOS, Android, Windows
Battery life: Up to 150 hours (6.25 days)

With almost 6x the required funding amount, and a special indiegogo sale price of $120 (around $70) we’re waiting for this to hit the stores soon.
