Scientists develop a 3D image cube: not quite HDTV yet


cube_3d.jpgWe’ve already seen the gCubik from Japanese researchers, and now Chinese boffins have come up with the LED Cube, an early prototype which could lead on to 3D imaging.

Currently using 1,000 LEDs supported by Plexiglas, low resolution video is transmitted to the Cube’s microchip, which then controls the individual diodes to create the required pattern.

It’s not going to replace 3D TV and silly coloured spectacles for a little while yet, but it’s a very interesting technology, and the video is pretty cool, too:
