Abstract
We live in a three dimensional world, where we can go around an object and observe it from all angles. The current displays: TVs, movie screens, and computer monitors are all two dimensional devices. These displays give us only "flattened" realities. The missing third dimension carries with it tremendous amounts of information that is absolutely vital to the users. ACT has demonstrated the principles of and is currently working on a ground-breaking display device that can display true three-dimensional images. It is not pseudo-3D or even 2.5D like some current display devices. It is truly 3D so that viewers can walk around the device and see a 3D object from all angles. This true 3D display device displays truly three dimensional images; uses existing CRT and flat panel display technologies, reducing development cost and time; easily incorporates current and future 2D technologies; and can be easily made compatible with current 2D television broadcasting signals and computer graphics softwares. It is not unscrupulous to predict that this technology will generate immense impact on the computer and consumer electronics industries.
