Scientists from the Ultra-High-Speed Optoelectronics and Information Processing Lab of the Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (FIAN), in cooperation with engineers from Samsung Electronics Research Center in Moscow, developed a 3D display that adapts itself to each consumer, FIAN reports.
Andrey Putilin, the author of the display, “When we look at a voluminous object, we observe it in detail by changing our position in relation to it or by rotating it. That’s how we form a three-dimension picture. In order to naturally form a 3D picture, forming different pictures for the right and left eye is not enough, it is important that the brain forms full 3D model. After the model is formed in the brain, the person will comprehend the object in 3D format. The case should be the same with the 3D image of an object: the person should absorb the 3D-picture from the point of view of his or her actions.”
The new adaptive system presents multiangle stereo information to each person individually. The scheme consists of a system, tracking position of the human eyes, lenses and micro-projectors. The latter build increased stereo-image for each eye in the lens area, which is then focused on the eye position level.
Stereo-image comprehension problems are alleviated through holographic and micro-prism lens structure. Another factor that helps to ease the problem is projection of stereo-image with mobile focus and adaptively changing distance between projectors. The system also allows to save on energy consumption and calculation resources.
