Paper Abstract

A method has been proposed to realize a transparent volumetric display using multiple mini-projectors and a rotating screen. Correct two-dimensional cross-sectional images are projected on a bidirectional scattering projection screen, which rotates to form a three-dimensional (3-D) image due to human vision persistence. An illumination subsystem is designed to ensure the accurate synchronization between the projectors and the rotating screen. Therefore, low-speed and low-cost miniature display devices can be used in the mini-projectors to realize dynamic volumetric imaging, which can satisfy all criteria of real 3-D vision with full color and high resolution. Experimental results of volumetric imaging realized by this method are also presented.
