SeeFront 3D Technology: 3D without glasses
The patented SeeFront 3D technology allows the user to view 3D content without special 3D glasses. An integrated eye-tracking system detects the user’s position and transmits it to the 3D engine. This engine combines the images for the left and right eye in a special way and in real time. An optical filter in front of the display generates a brilliant, compelling 3D impression. As the 3D image is continuously adjusted according to the user’s position, the user enjoys freedom of movement in all directions. The SeeFront 3D technology is perfect for entertainment or professional use by a single viewer with a mobile device, a laptop computer or a desktop monitor.
The Initiative “Germany – Land of Ideas”
Under the patronage of the German President, since 2006 the nation-branding initiative “Germany – Land of Ideas” has cooperated with Deutsche Bank to reward ideas and projects that make a lasting contribution to Germany’s future viability. The 365 „Landmarks” are chosen to represent the wealth of ideas and ability to make things happen, as well as bring the innovative power of Germany to life day after day. Land of Ideas Landmarks are not towns and villages in a geographical or political sense – they are to be found wherever innovations are created and developed. The jury consisting of scientists, science managers, journalists and politicians chose the most promising ideas for the future from more than 2000 applications in the six categories Economy, Culture, Science, Environment, Education and Society.
