The LightSpace 3D Volumetric Display
The LightSpace Display System is a solid state, rear projection, volumetric display that consists of two main components: a highspeed video projector, and a multi-planar optical element (MOE) composed of a air-spaced stack of liquid crystal scattering shutters.
The high-speed video projector projects a sequence of slices of the received from computer 3D image into the multi-planar optical element where each slice is halted at the proper depth.
Proprietary multi-planar anti-aliasing algorithms smooth the appearance of the resultant stack of image slices to produce a continuous appearing truly three dimensional image.
The multiplanar optical element (MOE) is a stack of 10 to 20 air-spaced liquid crystal scattering shutters.
The MOE acts as an electronically variable solid-state projection volume and, in conjunction with the high speed video projector, creates the 3D image.
