Optical instruments manufacturing company Kodak Co., is producing commercial prototypes of a 3D imaging system with resolution claimed to be good enough for gaming or scientific research. The firm's display uses two liquid crystal displays with a resolution of 1,280x1,024 pixels. The user views these through two "viewing pupils" that allow the displays to form a virtual 3D image. Field of view is 45 degrees by 36 degrees, which will reduce eyestrain, claimed Kodak. Applications include oil and gas exploration, molecular and chemical modeling, and CAD.
