Title: (EN) Three-dimensional image display method and apparatus
Abstract:
(EN) An apparatus for three-dimensional display of a two-dimensional image generated from a single view such as that produced on a television screen or a photograph. The apparatus comprises a two-dimensional array of lens assemblies which are placed adjacent to the plane of the two-dimensional image. The lens assemblies comprise, in the preferred embodiment, an object lens, an image lens, and a semi-rigid transparent layer between the lenses. The apparatus can be modified to provide three-dimensional viewing of a projected image such as that produced by a slide or movie projector by adding a specularly mirrored surface to the object lens and placing the apparatus at distance where the screen would normally be. Several methods of manufacturing the apparatus are disclosed.
