Multiscopy

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

In contrast with 3D binocular stereoscopy (displaying a 3D scene via a left-eye and right-eye angle), 3D multiscopy displays multiple angles at once.[1] This allows a viewer to move their head around the 3D subject to see it from different angles.

Examples[edit]

Examples of multiscopic (as opposed to stereoscopic) 3D technologies include:[2]

  • sweeping a projection across subsurfaces
  • transparent substrates (such as "intersecting laser beams, fog layers")
