|Abstract:||The directional display is a new kind of display which can contain and show several images -which particular image is visible depends on the viewing direction. This is achieved by packing information at high density on a surface, by a certain back illumination technique, and by explicit mathematical formulas which make it possible to automatize the printing of a display to obtain desired effects.
The directional dependency of the display can be used in several different ways. One is to achieve three-dimensional effects. In contrast to that of holograms, large size and full color here involve no problems. Another application of the basic technique is to show moving sequences. Yet another is to make a display more directionally independent than today’s displays.
Patent is pending for the invention in Sweden.
