200 inch Full HD Glasses-Free 3D Display Uses 57 Different Display Angles

A new 200 inch display has been unveiled that shows video from 57 different angles, enabling people to walk around in front of the screen and see behind corners or objects as they are shown on the screen. The amazing new full HD glasses-free 3D display has been developed by NICT, in collaboration with JVC Kenwood and is a great example of how display technology is being pushed to its limits.

The 200 inch screen weighs in at 500kg and consists of a condenser lens which focuses the light creating a sharp image, and a special diffuser film which lowers the horizontal diffusion angle, creating a smooth transition between the different viewing angles. Watch a video after the jump to see the screen in use.
