The World's Most Advanced Light Field Technology
The Looking Glass displays are powered by our proprietary light field technology that generates 45 distinct views of a three-dimensional scene. Unlike any 3D display that has come before it, multiple users now have the ability to gather around a Looking Glass to see different parts of that scene in the real world, without any eye-tracking or headsets.
How the Technology Works
On a 2D display, every pixel shines with a given intensity and color. But through the Looking Glass, the light also has directionality to it. The optics splits the otherwise normal 2D display into 45 different perspective. Which means, as you move left and right, each eye is grabbing the image from a different point of view and the light reflections, change realistically with your movement.

Many Perspective At Once
As you move around the Looking Glass, your eyes are exposed to different sets of 3D information, creating a life-like 3D experience for the viewer. What this means is that unlike other AR/VR or 3D monitor technologies which can sometimes cause nausea and discomfort, Looking Glass displays produce a very comfortable viewing experience that is both frictionless and collaborative.
