Asides from being very convenient, this also greatly reduces the cost of bringing 3D to the user as those special 3D glasses can be quite costly, not to mention quite cumbersome to wear.
How does it work?
To observe realistic 3D, our left eye needs to see a slightly different image than our right eye. When you close 1 eye, it's impossible to see real depth and indicate distances. The Merlin Pocket Theater 3D make it possible to send different images to your left and right eye. This is done by our special high quality lenticular lense. This lense handles the allocation of the image on subpixel level. Our eyes will see only 2 views at the time, making it possible to even look around objects that are projected in front of the display. Special software and algorithms make sure every (sub)pixel will be send to the display in the appropriate way to view a correct 3D effect.
What can you watch on it?
The Merlin Pocket Theater 3D is a great for watching 3D movies like AVATAR or photo's taken with a 3D camera (like the new FUJI Film or the Merlin 3D camera ) – but its also great for watching regular 2D movies and photos.
