Paper Abstract

Displays have only one function: the conveying of information to human beings. To do this well, the display must be well suited to the human viewing-comprehending system. Evolving in a three-dimensional (3D) world, humans have an exquisitely tuned system for seeing in 3D. A display capable of providing information in 3D would have a significant advantages over its more common 2D competitors: television, the printed page, etc. The fact that 3D displays are not in common use can only mean that the existing 3D displays have major drawbacks. Indeed that is the case.
