3D TVs are practically dead – hence the competition to deliver 3D glasses without glasses at home. But this does not mean that the technology is completely useless. Sony’s new Spatial Reality Display (or SR Display), for example, uses eye-tracking technology to create believable 3D objects without the need to wear 3D glasses or put on VR headphones. This is something that CG and VR artists can use to easily visualize their work. And no, it’s not for consumers – it̵
Sony made a preview of CES ‘SR display for the first time this year, where it was named its “Eye-Sensing Light Field Display”. It consists of a 15.6-inch 4K LCD; a high-speed vision sensor that tracks eye movement as well as your position as you walk around the display; and a micro-optical lens mounted on the LCD, and divides the screen for your left and right eyes to create a stereoscopic image. The SR display requires a solid state computer with the least modern Intel Core i7 processor and RTX 2070 Super NVIDIA RTX 2070 graphics processor to handle its complex real-time rendering algorithm. This makes sense as it produces two separate 2K images constantly to match the movement of your eyes.
