"Compressive Light Field Projection" May Lead to Glasses-free 3D Cinema

Researchers at the MIT Media Lab, Camera Culture Group (MA, USA) demonstrated their latest toy: a Compressive Light Field Projection system. "Compressive Light Field Projection" is the grand-grandson of the cyclostereoscope that was tried in France before WWII.

The new system combines one or more high resolution light field projectors with a passive angle-expanding retroprojection screen to create a large number of slightly shifted views and to project them directly into the viewer's eyes.
