Imagine a display that behaves like a window. Glancing through it, viewers perceive a virtual 3-D scene with correct parallax, without the need to wear glasses or be tracked by the system. Light that passes through the display correctly illuminates the virtual scene. By simultaneously capturing and displaying a 4-D light field, we are able to realistically modulate the incident light on rendered content. Our hardware points the way toward novel 3-D interfaces, in which users interact with hyper-realistic digital projections using light widgets, physical objects, and gesture.
