Today at the DC Expo in Tokyo, Sony has introduced a new 3D display that can be viewed from any direction. Unlike many 3D displays, the new display does not require glasses to view the 3D images, and several people can view the display simultaneously from multiple angles.

The cylindrical display case is 27 cm tall with a base of 13 cm in diameter, and features a 96 by 128-pixel resolution that looks better than might be expected. The screen displays 3D objects including a cartoon character, car, globe, and people. Sony created these objects either in 3D on a computer or by taking photographs of them from various angles. The result is that the objects appear to have depth, and can be viewed from any angle on the horizontal plane by walking around the display screen.

Being a gamer i can't wait to have this hit the gaming market if and when it does. I can also see this being used in 3d modeling for engineering and design. Really great tech

That is awesome. I wholly believe that Asia is the future and America is the past.

Shoot, quite a number of wealthy people have moved there and I can understand why. Sony has a nice R&D department and I'm pretty impressed with the new technology coming out these days.

That's amazing... even with a low resolution like that it still looked pretty decent even over youtube. I can already imagine playing some games on a big one of those


Another application for this tech I can think of off the top of my head would be for medical analysis. Imagine 3d x-rays or MRIs that are viewable on a screen like that?

Welcome to the future. Movie theaters are kicking it to high gear to make more 3D movies as well. It'll be nice when anime goes to 3D!!!! XD
