NICT Creates a 200 inch Glasses-Free 3D Display

And we thought the sixty-something inch displays from Toshiba were impressive!

Japan's National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) has created a 200 inch 3D display that doesn't need glasses for observation of the 3D image.

The displays aren't going to be for home use, nor will they be made for theaters. They're being designed to bring advertisements to life in a way never seen before. The 200 inch size was chosen so that advertisers could display full-scale images of cars or life-sized people.

The system uses 64 individual projectors that send a picture to the 2.5 meter high and four meter wide screen.

The NICT says the tech isn't quite ready yet, with light control and color balance being among the primary issues.
