3D Displays

We are developing new types of 3D displays that enclose a virtual scene within a geometric shape, such as a cube or sphere. This new class of display technology is well suited for applications in telepresence, 3D visualization, computer-aided design and entertainment.

pCubee is an personal cubic display that is light and compact enough to be held in one hand. It uses perspective-corrected rendering and real-time physics simulation to show 3D virtual scenes in a box. Spheree uses the same 3D techniques, but in the shape of a spherical display.

We have shown demonstrations of our 3D displays at SIGGRAPH E-Tech and ACM CHI Interactivity.
