Monocular depth has long been the missing ingredient for AR/VR and 3D TVs — that’s because most current 3D displays simulate depth using bulky stereoscopic headsets or glasses that trick your eyes into believing they see a 3D image. Dr. Heshmat, an MIT Media Lab alum, and founder of a display technology startup, has solved the problem of monocular depth and ushered in a new era of holodeck-like, immersive, deep 3D displays that are set to replace your desktop monitor in the coming years.
Dr. Barmak Heshmat is an optical physicist, entrepreneur and former MIT Media Lab Scientist. He explores the links between science fiction, art and invention, and his research dives into technology that changes the way we look at the world. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
