Viewing 3D Without Glasses

leave a comment »

Toshiba announced today that they are developing a television that’s capable of displaying 3D without the need for glasses. The technology is based on something called a parallax barrier. In essence, the parallax barrier is a thin barrier with precision slits in front of the display that allow different sets of pixels to be displayed at different angles. Time the pixels correctly, and your two eyes will see two different images (thus allowing 3D video) since your eyes are seeing the display from slightly different angles. The upcoming Nintendo 3DS will also be able to display 3D without the need for glasses. Read on to see a visual demo of how the parallax barrier works and what the Nintendo 3DS could look like.
