A team of researchers at MIT working in collaboration with the University of California has created a digital display tech that can automatically adjust for vision issues, thus eliminating the need for glasses or contacts.

The display technology is in reality a variation on glasses-free 3D which meets expectations not just by displaying diverse images to both the eyes, but by sending marginally distinctive images to distinctive parts of each pupil, thus recreating an image that appears right in front of the focal distance. You can watch an extremely specialized breakdown of the screen technology and how it works in the video above.

As stated by MIT News, the team of researchers, a part of the Camera Culture group at the MIT Media Lab has been attempting to refine a design for a projector that can formulate “glasses-free, multi-perspective, 3D video.” The basic idea behind the innovation is to discover a framework that can replace holographic video, which presently is not only costly but also unpractical for far reaching use. The display technology is speculated to be revealed at Siggraph, the computer graphics and interactive technique conference and exhibition that will be held in Canada this August.

Automatic Vision Correcting Displays

A few details have been revealed for now.

The display technology utilizes multiple LCD layers and for every single frame, it can project six diverse patterns that can be seen from eight diverse vantage focuses. This implies that the picture will seem to change as you stroll around the screen, much the same as how you see things in this present reality. The use of a screen with pinholes intended to block light from hitting particular parts of the pupil will mean reduced brightness while using this tech. However, a suitable solution for this issue as of now already exists and could be implemented using various commercial solutions.

Concerning how this tech may be utilized, the team of researchers at MIT that developed it see a lot of potential The display technology promises a lot of potential, especially with its use while reading or viewing GPS navigation devices for far-sighted people or near-sighted people.
