Samsung 3D display without glasses
The 3D effect can’t be captured by a camera,
but the cans are supposed to “pop out”

Designed for the advertising market, this 50” monitor can display stereo 3D without requiring viewers to wear glasses. The technology is called autostereoscopy and there are several implementations. This is one of the more successful demonstrations that I have seen since last year. The typical problem of autostereoscopy is that the resolution appears to be very low. With a pixel density increase, things will get better, and this is a good step. I watched for a minute and so far it does not seem to be a headache generator. It’s designed for advertising anyway, so people aren’t supposed to look at it for too long.
