Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) has developed 3D imaging technology which does not require stereoscopic glasses and is demonstrating a digital photo frame based on it at the Taitronics International Electronics Show which runs from October 9-13 in Taipei.
The 3D imaging technology is based on a micro-redardation array and allows people to view a 3D image without the need of special stereoscopic glasses. The technology currently is limited by poor resolutions and cannot be viewed by multiple viewers from a variety of angles. ITRI expects to fully develop the technology within five years.
