Polarized 3-D

  • June 21, 2011

This laptop can display 3-D content without requiring the user to wear special glasses. The computer’s Web camera tracks the location of the user’s face, and then the surface of the display is polar- ized accordingly to deliver separate images to each eye. Regions of the screen where no 3-D content is playing are left unpolarized.
