HP Labs Develops 3D LCD Display

HP Labs has developed a multi-view 3D display that shows hologram-like videos hovering above a screen without the need for the viewer to wear special glasses.

Viewers can walk around the image or video to experience it from around 200 different viewpoints — much like a real object.

The journal Nature says the LCD displays, which can be as as thin as half a millimeter, could revolutionise data visualisation, medical training and entertainment, particularly if adapted to mobile.
