3D TV uses Human Eye Blinks to replace Glasses by Jonathan Post

at 6:36 am. Filed under Complex Hacks, Crazy Hacks, Funny Hacks


In many 3D TV system you need to wear special active glasses, these glasses are synced to the video signal so that the TV can display the image for the right eye while covering the left and vice versa.   Jonathan Post has created a 3D TV system that uses the same principle but instead of  LCD lenses shielding alternate eyes he simply applies a small electrical charge to the eye lid muscle so that your eyes can blink at a fast rate to effectively mimic the effect of the 3D glasses. Only thing I am wondering about is how many times the human eye can blink without wearing out. I am thinking it would be at least 10 or 20 movies worth of blinks at 120 Hz.

    Except this is a joke video done with CG, not an actual workable product. Note how after a few seconds of his eyelids flickering he doesn’t scream “MY EYES!” and claw at them desperately? That’s how you can tell. 🙂

    I’m surprised how credulous the tech blogging community has been about this one – even hackaday got caught out!

    I don’t think you can blink at 60hz. Ouch.

  4. richard Says:

    No you can’t blink at 60hz.
    @ pelrun: Well, to be fair, it was Mike that posted it on hackaday, and he does have a habit of getting carried away. Caleb edited it stating that he and many commenters believed it was fake.

    Yeah, this is definitely a joke.

    hahaha, I think I’ll stick with circular polarization

    You want to see 3D with out glasses, turn your head from the computer screen to the window.
