3D TV: Motion Parallax Auto-stereoscopic

Recent releases of 3D movies like Avatar and Alice in Wonderland for both the movie theater and the home requires the user wear special optical glasses.

With a technology as old as 1908, technology researchers at NHK Integral have developed an experimental real-time system that uses an extremely high resolution video system, to create a 3D television system in which viewers need not wear special viewing glasses.

The video here gives us a glimpse of what may one day be a commonplace home and movie theater 3D TV experience, with one outstanding imperfection in the system. As the video states, this screen uses an 8K projector to create an image of only 400 by 250 pixels. This means that there are almost 280 2D pixels used to create one 3D pixel. Thus we ought not expect any opportunity to be pick up a set like this any time soon !
