Title:


    True 3D Display

Entry Number: 20


Description:


    Realizing a true three-dimensional (3D) display environment has been an ultimate goal of visual computing communities. Burton Inc. in Japan and others built upon the modern laser-plasma technology to come up with 3D Aerial Display device in 2006, with which the users are allowed to plot a unicursal series of illuminants freely in the midair, and thus the surrounding audience can enjoy watching different aspects of the 3D image from different positions without any eye strain [Kimura et al. 2006].

    Through the subsequent updates after the successful exhibition at SIGGRAPH 2006, we herein present our latest version of the device, called SRV (Super Real Vision)-5000, where we condensed our state of the art laser-plasma technology into a small acrylic case (Fig. 1).
