3D Display – Re-Imaging

February 10, 2013

My thesis explores 3D displays and user interfaces. I made my first test today using a re-imaging process often known as ‘pepper’s ghost.’ I created the scene with four cameras in three.js. The prism is made from 1/16″ plexi and for testing purposes I used a computer monitor laying on it’s back to act as the light source. In future iterations I plan to flip the prism and attach a projector above to act as the light source.

I also attached it to my Leap Motion to start playing around with potential user interfaces.
