    360 degrees-viewable display of 3D solid images


    Three-dimensional displays are drawing attention as next-generation devices. All-around displays have been proposed by [Maeda et al. 2003][Endo et al. 2004]. We have ever presented 360-degrees viewable 3D display called “Transpost” [Otsuka et al. 2006]. The previous prototype was capable of displaying QVGA resolution images of 10 by 15cm. One of the issues was to realize larger-sized and higher resolution 3D displays. In this paper, we present a prototype which can display XGA resolution images. Furthermore, we propose a novel simple structured design using LCD to achieve clearer images. We believe that our work provide new possibilities of 3D expression.
