400-Seats Holographic Theater Opens in Japan

A permanent theater devoted exclusively to 3D CG imagery will open this spring in Yokohama, Japan.

The 400 seats theater will be housed in a one-story building where the audience can enjoy stereoscopic images without having to wear 3D glasses because the CG imagery will be projected on stage. Details of the exact technology used are not available yet. The theater is expected to host shows exclusively using computer-generated imagery, and will be available for music concerts, theatrical plays, game events and other programs.

"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.
