Light Field Display

I remember reading Lines Composed a Few Miles above Tintern Abbey in high school. I totally misread the poem – my take away was that we shouldn’t force the physical onto the virtual world. Five years later, I ended up making this.

Lightwork is a $100 display my college roommate and I built out of spare iPads. It lets viewers interact with a dynamic light field video. Similar to a hologram, content appears 3D without requiring any special glasses. The catch is that it’s dim and low resolution.
