Someone will start a strip club like this for sanitary reasons.  The sale can be even bigger for games and tv/movies once they get away from the glasses and stereoscopic tricks.  Especially VR.  No more heavy headsets with big lenses.

Hmm. I'm still not getting from this vid what allows the 3D image sans glasses.  Something to do with the screen's outer layer? What's the thickness of this thing..

i spent a few minutes looking it up. its not really the screen. its really about the quality of the image/video being taken

 

so regular cameras work frame by frame. one focus point. the cameras project starline use have multiple focus points. so for every frame, it actually has multiple versions of it from slightly different perspectives. like your vision. you have a left eye version and a right eye version, combined to make 1.

 

watch this. it kinda explains it better

Thanks for this, Sal, very much. And while I'm now able to grasp the capturing side of things, which your video covers quite nicely, I'm left wondering about the rendering side of things on the original video above. Initially I would have assumed there was some kind of face (eye) recognition of the person watching the video which would adjust what's being projected, accordingly, ie always maintaining the appropriate perspective. But in Subroutine's video, there's a camera man in the room with the viewer, both seeing the correct, relative perspective, I assume. So there's something going on with the optics of the glass 'magic window' itself, likely to do with polarization, that allows multiple individuals on the receiving end to each maintain their own perspective.. Fantastic stuff!

 

Either way the future is here. And that Max calendar nude photo of Dorkas Kiefer in front of a Greek flag I keep *just out of frame* on the top shelf of a bookcase behind me during business calls is now going to have to go on my desk. ;-)

well. its probably multiple projectors and the glass is special made. think like a lighthouse glass. fresnal lense.

so someone sitting straight on gets a face to face but someone sitting off to the side gets a side view from another projector. when i looked i wasnt able to find anything on the display part. but it makes sense. like an old school hologram card.

Something like that I'm sure.

See? We can keep the masks on and make sure we don't get together and communicate offline forever now.
