Article: April 2004 Archives

by Kyle Ackerman


Recently, Eastman Kodak Company started publicly showing prototypes of its Stereoscopic Imaging Display system. It sounds complicated, but it is simply a device to display three-dimensional images without needing to rely on another set of filters (like polarized lenses) between your eyes and the screen. The current prototype looks a bit like the sensory apparatus on the set of a 1950's era space opera, but is surprisingly comfortable to use. You may have to plant your face in huge visor for the time being, but Kodak hopes that after additional research and several iterations of the technology, the Stereoscopic Imaging Display will become a device that can comfortably sit in the living room, and that multiple people will be able to use it to view three-dimensional images from a comfortable distance – like a couch.
