3D holographic screen to smartphones that does not require glasses coming
3D holographic screen for smartphone
Researchers at the Human Media Lab at Queen’s University have developed a prototype smartphones’s 3D holographic screen to display dynamic 3D images without the need for glasses, as is the case of the current 3D TVs, or any device to monitor the movement of the head, as with Nitendo 3DS.
So, how it is possible?
The device has a touch screen OLED touch with resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, but the images are displayed as a small arrangement of wide circles of 12 pixels. When viewed through a special cover made 3D printer covered with 16,000 tiny fisheye lens, these images look like they will jump off the screen. And as the phone is moved to different sides, 3D objects can be viewed from almost any angle.
However, the resolution of this holographic screen is still pretty low, with 160 x 104 pixels. But with development of the manufacturing technology, soon these special lenses will be invisible to the naked eye.
But, it is still not all. His OLED screen is completely flexible, allowing the phone to be bent and twisted by introducing an additional element of interaction. In addition to touch screen and other gestures, users can play games like Angry Birds to physically bend the device to release the birds. It also means that if you forget the HoloFlex pocket and sit on it, there is little risk of your screen to be buzzing after getting up.
